This study is a compendium of data presented for regions, census divisions, states, counties, cities, Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs), and standard federal administrative regions in the United States in 1977. The data provide diverse information ranging from government activities to population estimates and characteristics to housing unit descriptors. Included is selected information on government revenues, property taxes, and debts, and expenditures on education, highways, public welfare, health and hospitals, and police and fire, as well as information on births, deaths, schooling, labor force, employment, family income, family characteristics, marriage, divorce, electoral votes, and housing characteristics. Additional variables provide information on manufacturing, retail and wholesale trade, banking, mineral industries, farm population, agriculture, crime, and weather. The data were received from the Census Bureau as five separate files and were merged into one file.
