  • Abstract

    This data collection supplies standard monthly labor force data for the week prior to the survey.

Individual-level data were gathered from a national sample of over 162,000 eligible voters in November 1978. Included is information on household composition and type of residence, occupational and demographic details, and voting behavior in the November 1978 general election. Information on demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, and Hispanic origin, is available for each respondent.
