  • Abstract

    These Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) files contain records representing 1-percent samples of the occupied and vacant housing units in the United States and the people in the occupied units in 2000. Group quarters people also are included. The files contain individual weights for each person and housing unit, which when applied to the individual records, expand the sample to the relevant total. Some of the items included on the housing record are: acreage, agricultural sales, bedrooms, condominium fee, contract rent, cost of utilities, family income in 1999, farm residence, fire, hazard, and flood insurance, fuels used, gross rent, heating fuel, household income in 1999, household type, kitchen facilities, linguistic isolation, meals included in rent, mobile home costs, mortgage payment, mortgage status, plumbing facilities, presence and age of own children, presence of subfamilies in household, real estate taxes, rooms, selected monthly owner costs, size of building (units in structure), telephone service, tenure, vacancy status, value (of housing unit), vehicles available, year householder moved into unit, and year structure was built. Some of the items included on the person record are: ability to speak English, age, ancestry, citizenship, class of worker, disability status, earnings in 1999, educational attainment, grandparents as caregivers, Hispanic origin, hours worked, income in 1999 by type, industry, language spoken at home, marital status, means of transportation to work, migration Public Use Microdata Area (PUMA), migration state, mobility status, veteran period of service, years of military service, occupation, personal care limitation, place of birth, place of work PUMA, place of work state, poverty status in 1999, race, relationship, school enrollment and type of school, time of departure for work, travel time to work, vehicle occupancy, weeks worked in 1999, work limitation status, work status in 1999, and year of entry. The Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) files contain geographic units known as super-Public Use Microdata Areas (super-PUMAs) and Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs). To maintain the confidentiality of the PUMS data, minimum population thresholds are set for PUMAs and super-PUMAs. For the 1-percent state-level files, the super-PUMAs contain a minimum population of 400,000 and are composed of a PUMA or a group of contiguous PUMAs delineated on the 5-percent state-level PUMS files. Super-PUMAs are a new geographic entity for Census 2000. Super-PUMAs and PUMAs also are defined for place of residence on April 1, 1995, and place of work.

Sampled Universe
All persons and housing units in the United States.
Sampling
A stratified sample of the population created by subsampling the full census sample (approximately 15.8 percent of all housing units) that received the 2000 Census "long-form" questionnaire.
Collection Mode
  • (1) There are two files per part. The data file and the PUMS Equivalency file. The data file is hierarchical. The housing record has a record length of 316 with 106 variables and the person record has a record length of 266 with 155 variables. The Equivalency files list the geographic components (counties or MCDs, places, tracts where available) and their assigned PUMA and super-PUMA codes. (2) The codebook is provided by the principal investigator as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. The PDF file format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using PDF reader software, such as the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Information on how to obtain a copy of the Acrobat Reader is provided on the ICPSR Web site.
