  • Abstract

    This collection is composed of two files, a State File (Part 1) and a Metropolitan Area File (Part 2), both of which contain statistics gathered from approximately 70 government and private agencies. The State File contains variables on population, households, vital statistics, health, education, crime, social insurance and welfare, housing, land use, labor force and unions, income, utilities, banking, elections, and veterans. Data are available for all states and the District of Columbia, the United States, and Census regions and divisions. The Metropolitan Area File covers the same general topics as the State File. Data are available for the United States, all Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs), Standard Consolidated Statistical Areas (SCSAs), and metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas.
