Abstract: This data collection was produced by sampling 80,000 housing units selected from the 1970 Census of Population and Housing and adding new addresses collected from building permits. This file includes statistics on the housing inventory including year the structure was built, type of living quarters, occupancy status, number of rooms, real estate and property insurance, and value of the property. Additional information is included about mobile homes and condominiums. Information is also included regarding energy-related matters such as type of insulation and fuels used. Travel-to-work information is also presented for each worker in the household: mode of transportation, carpools, public transportation, and travel time and distance. Demographic characteristics are provided about each household member plus education and ethnic origin. The file has 79,976 records, each with a logical record length of 1,710 characters.
