  • 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 concerning weeks worked and hours per week worked, reason not working full-time, total income and income components, and residence. This collection was formed by expanding CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY: ANNUAL DEMOGRAPHIC FILE, 1983 (ICPSR 8192) to include monetary value estimates for five types of noncash benefits,such as food stamps, school lunch programs, public or subsidized rental housing, Medicaid, and Medicare. Estimates are derived from three valuation approaches: the market value approach, the recipient or cash equivalent approach, and the poverty budget share approach. Data on employment and income refer to the preceding year, while demographic data refer to the time of the survey. Information on demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, race, household relationship, and Hispanic origin, is available for each person in the household enumerated.
