  • Abstract

    The principal investigators for this data collection created a "uniform" series of Current Population Surveys: Annual Demographic Files (March) that have a rectangular file structure and use one set of documentation. These Current Population Survey (CPS) files are annual surveys of the population of the United States conducted by the United States Census Bureau and are often referred to as the March CPS Demographic Supplements. The files contain records for families selected in the samples as well as for each person in the families. Information is included on labor force activity, income, age, race, household structure, education, family relationships, occupation, and employment history.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Standardized missing values..
