Census of Population and Housing, 1980 [United States]: Census Software Package (CENSPAC) Version 3.2 with STF4 Data Dictionaries (ICPSR 7789) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This data collection contains the Census Software Package (CENSPAC), a generalized data retrieval system that the Census Bureau developed for use with its public use statistical data files. CENSPAC primarily provides processing capabilities for summary data files, but it also has some features that are applicable to microdata files. The actual software provides sample JCL for system installation, programs for system reconfiguration, source code for CENSPAC, and machine-readable data dictionaries for STF 1, STF 2, STF 3, and STF 4.

Data Collection Notes:

(1) The codebook is provided by ICPSR as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. The PDF file format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using PDF reader software, such as the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Information on how to obtain a copy of the Acrobat Reader is provided on the ICPSR Web site. (2) Documentation is provided from the Bureau of the Census detailing the CENSPAC command language for file definition and report generation, the Census documentor for preparing file documentation, and information on system installation. (3) Version 3.2 of the the Census Software Package consists of programs written in 1974 ANSI COBOL and requires 170k bytes of main memory, direct access storage for dictionary files, and input and output devices. CENSPAC was developed on an IBM 370/168 VS, but is also operational under UNIVAC EXEC-8, IBM OS, IBM DOS, Burroughs 7700 CDC 7000, UNIVAC 90/80, Honeywell 6600, DEC 20, DEC Vax, and APPLE II operating systems.
