Number of Files Received: 44

Comments: Donated by Deb Israel. In general, ".dat" are the data files and each has a corresponding ".lst" file which lists the variable number, description, and location. Under "desde" is the initial column number and under "largo" is the length of the variable. "Dec" is the number of decimal places, "-l" means not applicable. Each survey has both household and individual level data files. The individual files usually include DEM (demographics), MIG* (migration), EDU (education), EMP* (employment) and SAL* (health). In addition, there are dictionary files which list each variable and value labels. These are *hogdic.lst for household variables and *inddic.lst for individual variables. The household files include expenditure and housing information. These are in files labeled HOG* (for home) or GAS* (for expenditures) and VIV* (for housing). In individual files, the variable number corresponds to the question number preceded by a 1 (e.g. ques. 52 = variable 152). Codes get new variable numbers (since they don't have separate question numbers). For the 2nd round (AG-505-001) there is also an expenditure dictionary, *gasdic.lst, and for the 5th round (AG-505-003) there is a dictionary for the migrant variables, 5extdic.lst.

Abstract: Basic demographic and education information is available (e.g. gender, age, and highest level of schooling completed) in all the survey years. Language spoken is available in 1989, 1993, and 1994 (see other studies in series). The employment data include information about current and previous employment and unemployment status. Income from primary and secondary jobs, as well as income from other sources is included. The basic migration information covers where individuals were born, where they lived five years ago, and in some survey years where they lived one year ago. The health module varies somewhat from survey to survey, but the focus is on maternal health (pre- and post- natal) and children under five years old. The household data include access to services and type of housing, as well as fairly detailed household expenditures. The expenditure questions vary somewhat from year to year. The second round data is in two sets of files. These contain the primary city files and secondary city files (same names as main files but with an "o" for other). The cities in the primary files are: Sucre, La Paz, Cochabamba, Oruro, Potosi, Tarija, Santa Cruz, Trinidad, and El Alto. The cities in the secondary files are: Quillacollo, Punata, Llallagua, Huanini, Tupiza, Camiri, Montero, and Riberalta. The second round has some of the expenditures in expenditure files which have ten observations per household, corresponding to multiple response questions.
