Abstract: This file, also known as the Annual Demographic File, provides the usual monthly labor force data, but in addition, provides 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. Additional data include weeks worked and hours per week worked, reason not working full time, total income and income components, and residence on March 1, 1995. Data on employment and income refer to the preceding year, although demographic data refer to the time of the survey. This file also contains data covering nine non-cash income sources: food stamps, school lunch program, employer-provided group health insurance plan, employer provided pension plan, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance. Characteristics such as age, sex, race, household relationship, and Hispanic origin are shown for each person in the house enumerated.
