At the time a household or group quarters person was selected in the one-in-one-hundred sample (see ICPSR 7756), it was assigned a subsample number within each of the 38 strata. These subsample numbers range from 00 to 99. A sample of one-in-one-thousand was selected using the units digit of the subsample numbers. Thus, the one-in-one-thousand sample is a stratified systematic subsample of the one-in-one-hundred sample.
