Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection contains the Census Software Package (CENSPAC), a generalized data retrieval system that the Census Bureau developed for use with its public use statistical data files. CENSPAC primarily provides processing capabilities for summary data files, but it also has some features that are applicable to microdata files. The actual software provides sample JCL for system installation, programs for system reconfiguration, source code for CENSPAC, and machine-readable data dictionaries for STF 1, STF 2, STF 3, and STF 4.
