Abstract: This file of the Annual Housing Survey, also known as the National Core and Supplement File, is a companion to ANNUAL HOUSING SURVEY, 1981 [UNITED STATES]: NATIONAL CORE FILE. These files contain identical data gathered from the main AHS questionnaire plus data from the supplemental questions. The universe for these files consists of a sample of approximately 60,000 housing units selected from the 1970 Census of Population and Housing plus new addresses collected from building permits. This file focuses on characteristics of the housing inventory including the year the structure was built, type of living quarters, occupancy status, number of rooms, kitchen, plumbing, and heating facilities, means of sewage disposal, water source, mortgage, utility, real estate, and property insurance costs, and value of property. Similar data are provided about the previous living quarters of recent movers as well as reasons for moving.
