Abstract: These data supply monthly labor force information and, in addition, provide supplemental data on work experience, income, noncash benefits, and migration. Comprehensive information is included on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 14 years old and over. Additional data for persons 15 years old and older are available concerning weeks worked and hours per week worked, reason not working full-time, total income and income components, and residence on March 1, 1985. The file also contains data covering nine noncash income sources: food stamps, school lunch programs, employer-provided group health insurance plans, employer-provided pension plans, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance. Characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, educational attainment, household relationship, and Spanish origin are detailed for each person in the household enumerated.

SOURCE: personal interviews

UNIVERSE: Civilian noninstitutional population of the United States living in housing units and male members of the Armed Forces living in civilian housing units on a military base or in a household not on a military base.

SAMPLE: A national probability sample was used in selecting housing units. About 56,500 housing units were surveyed with an additional sample of 2,500 Spanish households added to the sample for the March survey. The sample was located in 729 sample areas comprising 1,973 counties and independent cities with coverage in every state and in the District of Columbia.

NOTE: Data on employment and income refer to the preceding year, although demographic data refer to the time of the survey. Geographic fields reflect the new metropolitan statistical area definitions. Migration data now cover a one-year rather than a five-year period. There are 74,145 household records, 64,127 family records, and 157,661 person records in the file.
