  • 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 are available for persons 15 years old and older 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 plans, employer-provided pension plans, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance. This data collection was formed by expanding CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY: ANNUAL DEMOGRAPHIC FILE, 1982 (ICPSR 9037) to include an estimate of after-tax income, "before-tax" money income received during the previous year, and the amount of taxes paid. Taxes include federal and state individual income taxes, property taxes on owner-occupied housing units, Social Security taxes, and retirement taxes. Information on demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, household relationship, and Hispanic origin, is available for each person in the household enumerated.
