Abstract: Information for this file was collected for Current Population Surveys in March and April, 1994. The March portion of this file, also known as the Annual Demographic File, provides the usual monthly labor force data, as well as supplemental data on work experience, income, noncash benefits, and migration. Comprehensive work experience information is given on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 15 years old and over, as well as data concerning weeks worked and hours per week worked, reason for not working full-time, total income and income components, and residence on March 1, 1994. This file also contains data covering nine noncash income sources: food stamps, school lunch programs, employer-provided group health insurance and pension plans, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance. Also included are demographic characteristics such as age, sex, race, household relationship, and Hispanic origin for each person in the household. The April portion of this file, the child support supplement, contains responses from all people 15 years of age and older, with children present in the household.
