Consumer Expenditure Survey, 1993-1994: Addendum Files (ICPSR 2261)

Principal Investigator(s):


The ongoing Consumer Expenditure Survey (CES) provides a continuous flow of information on the buying habits of American consumers and also furnishes data to support periodic revisions of the Consumer Price Index. The addendum files, Parts 1 and 2, contain corrected data for EXPN-IHC files for the third and fourth quarters of 1993 (Part 41, Hospitalization and Health Insurance -- Medicare, Medicaid, and Other Plans Not Directly Paid for by the Consumer Unit, in CONSUMER EXPENDITURE SURVEY, 1993: INTERVIEW SURVEY, DETAILED EXPENDITURE FILES [ICPSR 6543]) and for all four quarters of 1994 (Part 49, Hospitalization and Health Insurance [Medicare, Medicaid, and Other Plans Not Paid by CU], in CONSUMER EXPENDITURE SURVEY, 1994: INTERVIEW SURVEY AND DETAILED EXPENDITURE FILES [ICPSR 6710]). Part 3 is an ASCII text file consisting of a list of the variables by start position with variable name and attributes.
