  • Abstract

    This data collection supplies standard monthly labor force data 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. Additional data are available concerning weeks worked and hours per week worked, reason not working full-time, total income and income components, and residence. Besides the CPS core questions, this survey also gathered supplemental data on birth history, birth expectations, and child care arrangements. Data for women aged 15-59 years include the total number of children ever born, date of birth of the first child and most recent child, and date of first marriage. Women aged 18-44 years with a child under five years old in the household were asked about child care arrangements, including location of the facility, hours child care was provided, if cash or noncash payments were made, and whether they would work more hours if satisfactory child care was available. 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.
