Description
  • Abstract

    These data were collected to gain a better understanding of the living arrangements of persons 65 and older in the United States. The collection includes four related files. The Complete Person Extract hierarchical file (Part 1) contains data for households with one or more members aged 65 or older. These data consist of household records followed by varying numbers of person records that were extracted from CENSUS OF POPULATION AND HOUSING, 1980: [UNITED STATES]: PUBLIC USE MICRODATA SAMPLE (C SAMPLE): 1-PERCENT SAMPLE (ICPSR 8114) for all fifty states. The three rectangular files (Parts 2-4) are "complex household" subsets of the Complete Person Extract file. Complex households are households containing three or more persons and households containing two persons who are not related by marriage. There were 47,878 such households identified, containing 157,940 persons of whom 62,873 were 65 and over. The Complex Households file contains selected variables pulled from the PUMS housing records. The People and Elders in Complex Households files contain selected variables pulled from the PUMS person records, and specify kinship and other relationships for all persons and all elders 65 and older in complex households. Two additional rectangular data files (Part 6 and Part 7) containing all households and persons have been extracted from the original hierarchical file (Part 1).

Collection Mode
  • These data files can be merged with each other using the household identification variable, HID. A person identification (PID) uniquely identifies each person in a household. The Complete Person Extract hierarchical file contains both household records and person records for households with at least one person 65 and over residing. The detailed record layout for this file is exactly the same as that found on the original PUMS file. For description of the Census variables in this file, refer to the Public Use Microdata Samples Technical Documentation. Columns 161-162 in the Elders in Complex Households file do not contain valid data and should be ignored. The data contain blanks.
