Census of Population and Housing, 1980 [United States]: Summary Tape File 4B Extract (ICPSR 8229) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

Summary Tape File 4 consists of three sets of computer-readable data files containing highly detailed tabulations of the nation's population and housing characteristics produced from the 1980 Census. The files contain sample data inflated to represent the total United States population. The files also contain 100-percent counts and unweighted sample counts of persons and housing units. This series is comprised of STF 4A, STF 4B, and STF 4C. All three series have identical tables and format. Population items tabulated for each area include demographic data and information on schooling, ethnicity, labor force status, children, and details about occupation and income. Housing items include data on size and condition of the housing unit as well as information on value, age, water, sewage and heating, vehicles, and monthly owner costs.

Scope of Study

Subject Terms:   African Americans, automobiles, census county divisions, census data, children, consolidated metropolitan statistical areas, counties, demographic characteristics, education, employment, ethnicity, families, household composition, housing, housing conditions, income, metropolitan statistical areas, minor civil divisions, occupations, population, property values, real estate, states (USA)

Geographic Coverage:   Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York (state), North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, United States, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

Time Period:  

  • 1980

Date of Collection:  

  • 1980

Universe:   All persons and housing units in the United States.

Data Types:   aggregate data, census/enumeration data, survey data

Data Collection Notes:

All geographical entities from the complete STF 4B series are included in the extract file for each state, along with the seven major record types out of a possible total of 39. The record types in the extract file each represent a population group for which the detailed tabulations were presented. Included are record types for (1) total population, (2) Whites, (3) Blacks, (4) American Indians, Eskimos, and Aleuts, (5) Asians and pacific Islanders, (6) "other races", and (7) Spanish origin. The geographic entities for which all STF4 data items are tabulated and reported for the above groups in this extract are: states (along with numerous rural, urban, and SMSA components of each state), SCSAs (standard consolidated statistical areas), SMSAs (standard metropolitan statistical areas), urbanized areas, all counties and county equivalents (along with rural and rural-farm components of counties), MCDs/CCDs (minor civil divisions/census county divisions), places of 2,500+ population, and American Indian reservations/Alaskan Native villages (and county components of American Indian reservations). Each logical record in these files is comprised of 86,064 characters. For each record there are 44 record segments (physical records) of 1,956 characters each. These numbers represent the amount of data in a geographical area for each record type. Thus the total amount of data available for a given geographical area may be seven times as high as these numbers, if all the record types are present for that area. The number of data records varies by state.

Methodology

Sample:   These files include, for most variables, sample data from the 1980 Census inflated to represent the entire population of the United States. Some data from "100-percent counts" and unweighted sample counts are also provided.
