Abstract: The Survey of Program Dynamics (SPD) universe consists of the civilian noninstitutionalized population living in the United States in March 1992 and/or March 1993. The Third SPD Longitudinal file is a fully edited file that provides socio-economic data for calendar years 1992 - 2001, except 1995. It is intended for longitudinal analyses of effects of welfare reform on individuals, families and households. The file can be linked to the SPD Second Longitudinal, the SPD First Longitudinal, the SPD 2002, the SPD 2001, the SPD 2000, the SPD 1999, 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 eight or nine years depending on the panel. The 1992 panel contains data for 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. The 1993 Panel contains data for 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. There is no data available for 1995 because SIPP did not complete a years worth of data collection in either panel. Demographic data include age, sex, race, ethnic origin, marital status, household relationship, education attainment, and veteran status. Data on work experience like employment status, occupation, industry, weeks worked and hours per week worked, total income, and income components for people 15 years old and older are also available. It also has information on income sources such as income from jobs, net income from businesses, farm or rent, pensions, dividends, interest, and social security payments. Noncash benefits data covers food stamps, the school lunch program, employer-provided group health insurance plan, employer-provided pension plans, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS/Tricare or military health care, and energy assistance.
