Abstract: This dataset consists of modified records from the original 1970 Public Use tapes (see ICPSR 0018). The original records consisted of 120 character household records and 120 character person records, whereas the new modified records are rectangular (each person record is combined with the corresponding household record) with a length of 188, after the deletion of some items. Additional information was added to the data records including: typical educational requirement for current occupation, occupational prestige score, and group identification code. The following procedures were used in the initial construction of this dataset from the census tapes: (a)age--ages 15-75 included, (b)majority--no majority males are included, but the majority males from the 1970 (5%) dataset are included for convenience, (c)blacks--ten percent of each file was included, (d)Mexican Americans--this file does not include any Mexican Americans (Spanish surname) from outside the five southwestern states of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas. Information is included for 77,702 respondents. This study was made available by the National Chicano Research Network of the Institute for Social Research, The University of Michigan.
