Description
  • Abstract

    The Public Use Microdata Samples (PUMS) from the 1980 Census contain person- and household-level information from the "long-form" questionnaires distributed to a sample of the population enumerated in the 1980 Census. The C Sample identifies census regions, divisions, 27 individual states, and the District of Columbia. Four types of areas are shown: inside central cities, urban fringe, other urban, and rural. The C Sample separately identifies every urbanized area with a total population over 800,000, and roughly half of the urbanized areas between 200,000 and 800,000. As a percentage of the 1-percent Public Use Microdata Sample (C Sample) [CENSUS OF POPULATION AND HOUSING, 1980 [UNITED STATES]: PUBLIC USE MICRODATA SAMPLE (C SAMPLE): 1-PERCENT SAMPLE], this file constitutes a 1-in-1000 sample, and contains all household- and person-level variables from the original C Sample. Household-level variables include housing tenure, year structure was built, number and types of rooms in dwelling, plumbing facilities, heating equipment, taxes and mortgage costs, number of children, and household and family income. Person-level variables include sex, age, marital status, race, Spanish origin, income, occupation, transportation to work, and education.
