Census of Population and Housing, 1970 [United States]: Documentation for Census Bureau Restricted Data (ICPSR 21981)

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This documentation has been created by ICPSR for the restricted version of Census 1970 distributed by the Bureau of the Census. The restricted data is based on questions from the long form questionnaire, and was collected from one in six households in the United States. Topics covered include income, ancestry, citizenship status, home values, commute time to work, occupation, education, veteran status, language ability, migration, place of birth, and many others. The documentation available here provides files summaries, variable information, and facilitates sorting of the data by race or by a wide variety of geographical units.

ICPSR is not distributing the restricted data, only the documentation for it. Users who wish to access the restricted data can find more information at the Michigan Census Research Data Center Web site.

Users should also note that the data for the public versions of Census 1970 are available from ICPSR.
