  • Abstract

    This data collection supplies standard monthly labor force data as well as supplemental data on work experience, income, noncash benefits, and migration. Comprehensive information is given on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 14 years old and older. Additional data for persons 15 years old and older are available concerning weeks worked and hours per week worked, reason not working full-time, total income and income components, and residence. This file also contains data covering noncash income sources such as food stamps, school lunch programs, employer-provided group health insurance, employer-provided pension plans, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance. This data collection was created by expanding the CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY: ANNUAL DEMOGRAPHIC FILE, 1981 (ICPSR 8192) to include an estimate of after-tax income, "before-tax" money income from the previous year, and the amount of taxes paid. Taxes paid include federal and state individual income taxes, property taxes on owner-occupied housing units, Social Security taxes, retirement taxes. Information on demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, household relationship, and Hispanic origin are provided for each respondent.
