Abstract: The 1990 census equal employment opportunity (EEO) file on CD-ROM is based on civilian labor force data form the 1990 decennial census. The file contains two sample-based sets of tabulations. The first set is a cross-tabulation of a detailed census occupation distribution by sex, race, and Hispanic origin. The second set shows educational attainment for selected age groupings, by sex, race, and Hispanic origin. The geographic coverage includes all states and the District of Columbia, all counties and statistically equivalent entities, all metropolitan statistical areas (MSA's), consolidated metropolitan statistical areas (CMSA's), and primary metropolitan statistical areas (PMSA's), all places with a population of 50,000 or more (both incorporated places and census designated places), and all minor civil divisions with a population of 50,000 or more in 12 states. This CD contains a retrieval program, GO. It has three output formats: flat ASCII, delimited ASCII and dBASE III. Files are in dBASE format. A BASIC program is provided to convert dBASE files to ASCII ones.
