Abstract: The data in these files were gathered from various Federal agencies and national sources including the 1980 Census of Population and Housing, the 1977 Economic Census, and the 1978 Census of Agriculture. There are three data files a counties file, a cities file, and a places file. The universes vary from file to file. The counties file provides data on area and population, households, vital statistics, health, Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, crimes, housing, journey to work, education, labor force, personal income, money income government employment and finances, manufactures, wholesale and retail trade, service industries, banking, elections, and agriculture. It provides data for the United States, 50 states and the District of Columbia, and 3,137 counties or county equivalents. The counties file includes 3,189 records: a United States total, 51 state and District o Columbia records, and 3,137 county records. There are two physical records (segments) of 1,276 characters for each of the conceptual 'records' in the counties file. The sequence of records is FIPS state code and, within that, FIPS county code. The cities file includes, in addition to most of the subjects in the counties file, data on workers in family, climate, and residential electric bills. The cities file provides data for 50 states and the District of Columbia and 957 cities with 25,000 inhabitants or more in 1980. The cities file includes 1,008 records: 51 state and D.C. records, and 957 city records. The record length is 2,015 characters and the sequence of records is FIPS state code and, within that, census place code. The places file provides data on land, population, money income, and households It includes data for states and the District of Columbia and places with 2,500 inhabitants or more in 1980, and, for 11 states, minor civil divisions (MCDs) with 2,500 inhabitants or more in 1980. Incorporated cities with 25,000 inhabitants or more appear in both the cities file and the places file. The places file includes 10,020 records: 51 state and D.C. records, 7,601 place records, and 2,368 MCD records. The record length is 246 characters. The sequence of records is FIPS state code and within that, Census place code. For the 11 states for which MCDs are shown, the MCD records follow the place records which are sorted alphabetically within the state.
