Abstract: The Annual Demographic surveys produced by the Census Bureau are often referred to as the March CPS Demographic Supplements. The 1985 survey marks the eighteenth year that these data have been compiled. In addition to the usual monthly labor force information, this file contains supplemental data on work experience, income, noncash benefits, and migration. Comprehensive data are provided for persons age 14 and over on employment status, occupation, and industry. For persons age 15 and over, additional data include hours worked per week, income components, and residence. Age, race, household relationship, and Spanish origin are included for each person in each of the households enumerated. The universe of this survey is the civilian noninstitutional population of the United States living in housing units, and male members of the Armed Forces living in civilian housing units. State of residence, census division and region, and selected Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas are uniquely identified. The data are contained in one file of 301,261 records, with approximately 330 variables. The logical record length is 390 characters.
