Abstract: The Current Population Survey (CPS) is a household survey sample consisting of the civilian non-institutional 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 households not on a military base. The file comprises records for the six rotation groups common to the March and April 1982 Current Population Surveys. For females 18 years and over, data are included on alimony and child support collected from the April supplement. These data highlight alimony and child support arrangements made a the time of separation or divorce, amount of payments actually received, and value and type of any property settlement. This file also provides the usual monthly labor force data plus data on work experience, income, and migration. Comprehensive information is given on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 14 years old and over. Additional data for persons 15 year and over are available concerning work weeks, work hours per week, and income. Information on age, sex, race, household relationship, and Spanish origin was collected for each person in the household enumerated. Data on employment and income refer to the previous year while demographic data refer to the time of the survey. The data file has 203,349 records, one for each person sampled.
