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 1990 Census. The 1% Sample unlike previous years has its own set of geographies, known as ''Public Use Microdata Areas'' (PUMAs), established by the Census Bureau with assistance from each State Data Center. The PUMAs in the 1-Percent Sample are based on a distinction between metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas. Metropolitan areas encompass whole central cities, Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas (PMSAs), Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), or groups thereof, except where the city or metropolitan area contains more than 200,000 inhabitants. In that case, the city or metropolitan area is divided into several PUMAs. Nonmetropolitan PUMAs are based on areas or groups of areas outside the central city, PMSA, or MSA. PUMAs in this 1-Percent Sample may cross state lines. This data set contains all household-level and person-level variables. Housing variables include area type, state and area of residence, farm/nonfarm status, type of structure, year structure was built, vacancy and boarded-up status, number of rooms and bedrooms, presence or absence of a telephone, presence or absence of complete kitchen and plumbing facilities, type of sewage, water source and heating fuel used, property value, tenure, year moved into house/apartment, type of household/family, type of group quarters, language spoken in household, number of persons, related children, own/adopted children, and stepchildren in the household, number of persons and workers in the family, status of mortgage, second mortgage, and home equity loan, number of vehicles available, household income, sales of agricultural products, payments for rent, mortgage, and property tax, condominium fees, mobile home costs, and costs for electricity, water, heating fuel, and flood/fire/hazard insurance.
