Census of Population and Housing, 1990 [United States]: Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) File (ICPSR 9929) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This file, the 1990 counterpart to the CENSUS OF POPULATION, 1980 [UNITED STATES]: EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY SPECIAL FILE (ICPSR 9026), is based on civilian labor force data from the 1990 Decennial Census and provides occupational and educational attainment data to support affirmative action planning for equal employment opportunity. The file consists of two sets of crosstabulations for the United States civilian labor force. The first set of tables provides data for 512 occupational categories by sex, race, and Hispanic origin. The second set presents educational attainment data for seven age groups by sex, race, and Hispanic origin. Both sets of tables are summarized geographically for the United States, all states and the District of Columbia, all counties and statistically equivalent entities, all Metropolitan Statistical Areas, Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Areas, and Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas, all places with populations of 50,000 or more, and all minor civil divisions with populations of 50,000 or more in 12 states.
