Comments: This was formerly the 3rd edition of AH-004-020 (but it was originally cataloged at AH-004-028 but then withdrawn as recataloged as the 3rd ed.). Decision was made in 12/93 to RE-catalog it as AH-004-028 to avoid obvious confusion between 1970-based weights file and 1980. THIS IS THE 1980-based weights file! 1/96 was ftp-ed from ICPSR.

Abstract: This is a new version of a data collection that was previously released as ICPSR #7863. That version, done in March 1980, used the 1970 Census as a basis for determining the weight variable. After the 1980 Census was completed, a new version was prepared using the 1980 Census as a basis for the weighting. Both versions are available to users. This file, which is replicated each March, currently contains information on around 68,000 families and their members, it provides comprehensive data on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 14 and over including income and demographic data. This 1980 version has 196,718 records, each with a logical record length of 698. Approximately 350 variables are included for each record.

SUBJECT TERMS: census data. children. demographic characteristics. education. employment. ethnicity. family. household structure. income. job history. occupations. population. socioeconomic indicators. United States.
