Census of Population and Housing, 1990 [United States]: Summary Tape File 2B (ICPSR 9848) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This data collection provides detailed tabulations of 100-percent data items from the 1990 Census of Population and Housing. These tabulations are presented for states, counties, places with 1,000 or more persons, county subdivisions with 1,000 or more persons (selected states), county subdivisions with fewer than 1,000 persons in Metropolitan Statistical Areas/Consolidated MSAs (MSAs/CMSAs) (selected states), and state and county portions of Native American and Alaskan Native areas. Population items include age, race, sex, marital status, Hispanic origin, household type, and household relationship. Housing items include occupancy/vacancy status, tenure, units in structure, contract rent, meals included in rent, value, and number of rooms in housing unit. Crosstabulations include variables such as single year of age by sex, tenure by age of householder, age by group quarters, aggregate value by units in structure, and tenure by number of nonrelatives. The dataset contains both "A" and "B" records. "A" records are provided for each summary level in a geographic area, and are repeated for each geographic component. "B" records repeat the same data for each summary level/geographic component combination, but are tabulated for each of 34 categories of race and Hispanic origin.

There are tables for condominium ownership, occupancy, and value. The tables for rent amounts do not include meals. There are 25 population tables and 63 housing tables for Puerto Rico. (2) The codebook for the state data is in ASCII text format, and the codebook for Puerto Rico is provided 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 Adobe Acrobat Reader.
