Census of Population and Housing, 1990 [United States]: Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Supplemental Tabulations File, Part I (ICPSR 6223)
The Census Bureau has created a special subset file from the 1990 Census of Population and Housing data designed to meet the needs of Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and affirmative action planning. It contains detailed 1990 Census data dealing with occupation and educational attainment for the civilian labor force, various racial groups, and the Hispanic population. The file consists of four tabulations of the United States civilian labor force. They present EEO data similar to those in the CENSUS OF POPULATION AND HOUSING, 1990 [UNITED STATES]: EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY (EEO) FILE (ICPSR 9929), but are expanded to include occupation data by education level, industry group, and earnings. Total population and unemployment data are also available. They are referred to as Tables P1-P4. Table P1 lists occupation by education by sex by race and Hispanic origin. Table P2 lists occupation by earnings by sex by race and Hispanic origin. Table P3 lists occupation by industry by sex by race and Hispanic origin. Table P4 lists population and unemployment by sex by race and Hispanic origin. The collection includes four United States files and 51 separate files, one for each state and Washington, DC. Each state file contains statistics for the state, each county, Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs), and places with a population of 50,000 or more.

The data in each file are presented in a collapsed fashion. That is, table cells with no data are not shown. When reading the summary levels in position 2 of the data dictionary, it is important to recognize that the dashes separate the individual hierarchies, while slashes separate different types of geography within the same hierarchy.
Sample: The data contained in this file are based on the long form questionnaire for the 1990 Census. This form was administered to approximately 17 percent of the housing units nationwide using a variable-rate sampling method based on geographic location and population.
