Comments: As received from ICPSR via FTP. WARNING: a problem was discovered by a graduate student and confirmed by CPS staff (at 301-457-1139) with the column locations. The codebook states that column 129 is supposed to be padding; this is not the case. All columns starting at 130 are shifted back by one. (Before column 130, codebook and data match). Similarly, column 318 is supposed to be padding and is not. From 319 to the end of the records, data are shifted back by TWO columns. The data are usable except for these important errors. This is a hierarchical dataset; please read the documentation carefully. Note: As of 8/97 ICPSR has been re-released this study with corrected dictionary and machine-readable [pdf] documentation which includes the questionnaire.
