Geographic Coverage:    United States

Time Period:   

  • 1999-03--2000-03

  • 2000-03

Universe:    Civilian noninstitutional population of the United States living in housing units and members of the Armed Forces living in civilian housing units on a military base or in households not on a military base.

Data Type(s):    survey data

Data Collection Notes:

In this hierarchical dataset, there are three record types. The first record type is Household, with 124 variables for 64,944 records. The Family record type has 76 variables for 58,093 records, and Person records have 430 variables for 133,710 records. There are a total of 256,747 records in the file.

Jean Roth from the National Bureau of Economic Research submitted SAS and SPSS data definition statements for this collection. These files produce a merged dataset with all records concatenated and, in the case of SAS, will produce additional datasets with specific record types included.


Sample:    A national probability sample was used in selecting housing units. About 60,000 housing units were contacted, with an additional 3,500 Hispanic households added to the March survey sample. The sample was located in 792 sample areas comprising 2,007 counties and independent cities with coverage in every state and the District of Columbia.

Version History:

  • 2001-11-02 The codebook for this collection has been updated and replaced, per User Note 1. Three items in the Household record (H-FAMINC, H-RESPNM, H-TYPEBC) and six items in the Person record (A-HRS1, A-WKSLK, PRPTREA, PEABSRSN, PEHRUSLT, PXNATVTY) were corrected to match the existing data. Recent improvements in data processing have made it possible for a -1 to be included in the list of possible values for certain items. Where previously the value for "not in universe" was assigned 0 (zero), this is no longer universally true. For the nine items mentioned above, the value of "not in universe" is assigned to -1, not 0 (zero). The documentation now correctly represents these nine items. Also, SAS and SPSS data definition statements produced by the National Bureau of Economics Research have been added to the collection.
  • 2001-02-07 SAS and SPSS data definition statements have been added to this data collection.
