Comprehensive data are available on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 15 years old and over. Also supplied are personal characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, household relationship, educational background, and Spanish origin. Supplemental questions pertaining to immigration were asked of all household members. Questions include country of birth, father's and mother's country of birth, and citizenship.
