Abstract: This is a longitudinal survey designed to provide detailed information on the economic situation of households and persons in the United States. The data examines distribution of income, wealth, and poverty in American society and gauges the effects of federal and state programs on the well-being of families and individuals. There are three basic elements contained in the survey. The first is a control card that records basic social and demographic characteristics for each person in a household, as well as changes in such characteristics over the course of the interviewing period. The second element is the core portion of the questionnaire, with questions repeated at each interview on labor force activity, types and amounts of income, participation in various cash and noncash benefit programs, attendance in postsecondary schools, private health insurance coverage, public or subsidized rental housing, low-income energy assistance, and school breakfast and lunch participation. The third element consists of topical modules, which are a series of supplemental questions asked during selected household visits. Topical modules include some core data to help link individuals to the core files. Topical module data for the 1992 Panel cover the following topics: Topical Module 1 -- welfare and other aid recipiency and employment, Topical Module 2 -- work disability, education and training, marital status, migration, and fertility histories, Topical Module 3 -- extended measures of well-being, including consumer durables, living conditions, and basic needs, Topical Module 4 -- assets and liabilities, retirement expectations and pension plan coverage, real estate, property, and vehicles, Topical Module 5 -- school enrollment and financing, Topical Module 6 -- work schedules, child care, support for nonhousehold members, functional limitations and disabilities, utilization of health care services, and home-based self-employment and size of firm, Topical Module 7 -- selected financial assets, medical expenses and work disability, real estate, shelter costs, dependent care, and vehicles, Topical Module 8 -- school enrollment and financing.
