  • Abstract

    This data collection supplies standard monthly labor force information for the week prior to the survey. Comprehensive information is given on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 14 years old and older. This supplement covers three topical areas: marital history, fertility history, and birth expectations. Data on marital history is provided for up to three marriages, the first two and the most recent marriage. All respondents aged 15-75 who had ever been married were asked to provide date of marriage, date marriage ended in widowhood or divorce, and for marriages ending in divorce, the date of separation. Men in their second or later marriage or who were widowed, divorced, or separated were asked about children living elsewhere who they supported. Questions about fertility history were asked of all women ages 18-75 and women 15-18, who had ever been married. Data are provided on the number of liveborn children including date of birth, sex, and current residence. Items of birth expectations include the number of children women aged 18-39 expected to have. Information on demographic characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, household relationship, educational background, and Hispanic origin, is available for each person in the household enumerated.
