Abstract: The file comprises records for the six rotation groups common to the March and April 1986 Current Population Surveys. For females 18 years and over, data are provided on alimony and child support collected from the April supplement. These data highlight alimony and child support arrangements made at 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 years old and over 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. Characteristics such as age, sex, race, household relationship, and Spanish origin are shown for each person in the household enumerated. The data on employment and income refer to the preceding year, although demographic data refer to the time of the survey. This file also contains data covering nine noncash income sources: food stamps, school lunch program, employer-provided group health insurance, employer-provided pension plan, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance.
