Abstract: The composite SIME16th file is built around persons who were ever heads of a SIME family, called principle persons. The file contains 72 months of demographic, employment, earnings, and unemployment data for each principal person; similar data for the spouse, if present; family composition, unearned income, and selected net worth and real property data for the person's family; and selected earnings and employment data for all other core (adult) persons ever living with the principal person. The 72 months cover the period of the Enrollment Interview through the 16th Periodic--January 1970 through December 1975--providing a year (or more) of data prior to the start of the experiment for all families; up to three years of data while the experiment was operating for families enrolled for three years; up to five years of data while the experiment was operating for families enrolled for five years or twenty years, and one or two years of post-experimental data for families enrolled for three years.
