  • Abstract

    This data collection provides information on the characteristics of a national sample of housing units. Data include the year the structure was built, type and number of living quarters, presence of a garage, occupancy status, access, number of rooms and bedrooms, presence of commercial establishments on the property, and property value. Additional data focus on kitchen and plumbing facilities, types of heating fuel used, source of water, sewage disposal, and heating and air conditioning equipment. Information provided on housing expenses includes monthly mortgage or rent payments, cost of services such as utilities, garbage collection, and property insurance, and amount of real estate taxes paid in the previous year. Similar data are provided for housing units previously occupied by respondents who had recently moved. Additionally, indicators of housing and neighborhood quality are supplied. Housing quality variables include privacy of bedrooms, condition of kitchen facilities, basement or roof leakage, cracks or holes in walls, ceilings, and floors, breakdowns of plumbing facilities and equipment, use of exterminator service, and respondent's overall opinion of structure. For quality of neighborhood, variables include existence of boarded-up buildings, noise, lack of street lighting, heavy traffic, objectionable odors, crime, and respondent's overall opinion of neighborhood. In addition to housing characteristics, demographic data are provided on the household members, such as sex, age, race, marital status, relationship to the household head, and income. Additional data are provided on the head of the household including years of school completed, Hispanic origin, and length of residence.
