Abstract: The 1999 SPD Cross-Sectional file is a minimally edited file that provides socioeconomic data for calendar year 1998. It is intended for analyses of effects of welfare reform on individuals, families and households. The file can be linked to the SPD Third Longitudinal, the SPD Second Longitudinal, the SPD First Longitudinal, the SPD 1998, the SPD 1997 Bridge and the 1992 and 1993 SIPP Panel files. The file contains basic demographic, economic, and social characteristics data for each member of the households for 1999. The subjects include demographic data on age, sex, race, ethnic origin, marital status, household relationship, education attainment, and veteran status; economic data on work experience, income and noncash benefits. Its geographic coverage include 41 individual states, plus the District of Columbia. However, the sample is not designed to produce state estimates. The SPD sample in the nine remaining states is identified in three groups for confidentiality reasons. The three groups are as follows: Maine and Vermont; Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota; and Alaska, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.
