Census of Population and Housing, 1990 [United States]: Summary Tape File 4C (ICPSR 6308)
Summary Tape File STF 4C, which provides summaries for the entire United States, is comprised of sample data weighted to represent the total population and also contains 100-percent counts for total persons and total housing units. Additional population and housing variables include items such as age, ancestry, disability, citizenship, education, income, marital status, race, sex, travel time to work, hours worked, rent, persons in household, acreage of property, tenure, value of housing unit, number of vehicles, and monthly owner costs. Geographic coverage includes the United States, census regions, divisions, states, counties, places with 10,000 or more persons, minor civil divisions of 10,000 or more persons in selected states, and metropolitan and urbanized areas. The "A" records contain 123 population tables and 80 housing tables. These include five population tables and one housing table showing 37 categories of race, and five population tables and one housing table with 26 categories of Hispanic origin. Data are included for all persons for each summary level and geographic component level within a unit of geography. More detailed data are presented in 178 population and 85 housing tables in the "B" records.
