Abstract: The Current Population Surveys (CPS) are administered monthly by the Bureau of the Census to over 50,000 households. These surveys gather a wealth of information on the education, labor force status, demographics, and other aspects of the U.S. population. Each month's CPS has a different emphasis. The October surveys focus on school enrollment. The access software which accompanies this CD-ROM allows users to view the questionnaire, search variables, select specific variables and create data subset containing variables and years specified by a user. It also offers uniformly recoded versions of selected variables.
