Abstract: This diskette contains NEWID and STATE identifiers for use with the 1982 through 1985 Interview public use tapes of the Consumer Expenditure Survey. Combining files on this diskette with the FMLY files by matching NEWID, public use tape users can now identify the state of residence of consumer units. The diskette contains three directories, each identified by year. These directories contain quarterly files containing NEWID and STATE codes. The last portion of the file names identify the quarter [NOTE that DPLS has combined all the files together, the 'subdirectory' structure was lost, but the quarters are still identifiable via the filename extension]. These files are standard ASCII files where the first 8 positions are reserved for the NEWID code, and positions 10 and 11 are reserved for the STATE code.
