Description
  • Abstract

    This is a new version of a data collection that was previously released under the title CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY: ANNUAL DEMOGRAPHIC FILE, 1984 (ICPSR 8300). The earlier dataset used the 1980 Census as a basis for weighting. This reweighted file instead uses a new weighting procedure introduced into the Current Population Survey monthly estimation beginning in January 1985. It will enable users to gauge the impact of the new weighting procedure on estimates of change from March 1984 to March 1985. Both versions of the 1984 Annual Demographic File are available to users. 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. (Occupation and industry were coded using the 1980 Census of Population occupation and industry classification schemes.) 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 on March 1, 1983. This file also contains data covering nine 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. Information on demographic characteristics, such as age, race, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, household relationship, and Hispanic origin, is available for each person in the household enumerated.
