Abstract: The Public Use Microdata Samples (PUMS) contain person-level and household-level information from the ''long-form'' questionnaires distributed to a sample of the population enumerated in the 1980 Census. The 1% Sample identifies every state, county groups, and most individual counties with 100,000 or more inhabitants. In many cases, individual cities or groups of places with 100,000 or more inhabitants are also identified. This data set contains all household-level and person-level variables. Household-level variables include housing tenure, year structure was built, number and types of rooms in dwelling, plumbing facilities, heating equipment, taxes and mortgage costs, number of children, and household and family income. Person-level variables include sex, age, marital status, race, Spanish origin, income, occupation, transportation to work, and education.
