Abstract: Data in this set were retrieved from the 1970 Census of Population and Housing Fourth Count Summary Files and include selected variables not found in the County and City Data Book, 1972 . The file includes 96 substantive variables on such topics as age, nativity, education, employment, and income. Identification variables such as the names of counties, SMSA code, and both the Census Bureau and ICPSR state and county codes are also presented. These data were originally retrieved from the 1970 Census Fourth Count summary tapes by John McAdams of Harvard University, who supplied the file to ICPSR. Processing by the Consortium included the addition of ICPSR identification codes and county names, minor reformatting of the substantive variables, and correction of some SMSA code values.

SUBJECT TERMS: census data. county-level. demographic characteristics. education. employment. housing. income. nativity. occupations. population. states. Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas. United States.
