Comments: This study is included on ICPSR's Periodic Release CD-ROM 96005. The Periodic Release CD-ROM is a product designed for use on a Windows- or DOS-based personal computer and is intended for use as a means of data distribution. It may also be used within the Macintosh environment utilizing either system 7.0 and above or system 6.08 and the appropriate PC emulation software. The CD-ROM does not contain software for text or data searches, extraction or analyses.

The files with the .EXE extension are self-extracting files that were generated using Info-ZIP's ZIP compressor/archiver and PKWARE's ZIP2EXE utility for generating self-extracting files. Self extracting files allow PC users to easily and quickly decompress and transfer the files to their equipment, usually a hard disk, without the need to install any extraction software locally.

Users should consult the study files listing (S0000LST.TXT) of the appropriate study to determine the storage requirements for the uncompressed files.
