Abstract: The County and City Data Book Consolidated File: City Data, 1944-1977, is a collection of data gathered from both governmental and private sources. The data cover such diverse areas as the following: population, employment, vital statistics, school enrollment, health, income, public assistance and social security, banking, housing, government employment and finance, elections, crime, manufacturing, retail and wholesale trade, selected services, mineral industries, farm population, agriculture, and weather. The data are drawn from County and City Data Books published from 1944-1977 for all United States cities (both incorporated and unincorporated) with a population greater than 25,000. No data are available, however, for individual cities in years when the city had a population of less than 25,000. The data for this collection are contained in one file of 1,014 logical records. The logical records are each 9,985 characters in length and are arranged in hierarchical order by city within state.

SUBJECT TERMS: census data. cities. county-level. demographic characteristics. economic attitudes and behavior. government expenditures. political attitudes and behavior. population. states. urban affairs. Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas. United States.
