Description
  • Abstract

    These data, which correspond to tables provided in the documentation, summarize information on the United States population aged 60 years and over that was collected in the 1980 Census of Population and Housing. The tables were prepared by the Bureau of the Census at the request of the National Institute on Aging. The tables are comprised of cross-tabulations of both "100 percent items" and "sample items" with age (bracketed in five year intervals from 60-64 through 90+). Race (White/Black/American Indian/Asian Pacific Islander/Spanish Origin) is a factor in all of the tables, either as race of respondent, of householder, or of family head. The file contains data for a complete set of tables for each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia and five territories, the nine Census divisions, the four Census regions, and the United States as a whole.

Sampling
Estimates for "sample items" from the 1980 Census have been "exploded" or expanded to represent the entire U.S. population. Other items are "100% items", such as age, sex, race, Spanish origin, marital status, and household relationship.
Collection Mode
  • The data are in the form of 72 tables per geographic unit of analysis, or 4,680 tables in all. Each set of tables shows cross-tabulations of age with different combinations of 37 other items from the 1980 Census. Each row of data constitutes a record. There are 1,430,000 records (approximately 150-1500 rows of data per table per geographic unit). There are seven columns of data per table, corresponding to the age brackets.
