Census of Population and Housing, 1990 [United States]: Special Tabulation Program (STP) 14A, Special Tabulation on Aging (ICPSR 6300) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This data collection, sponsored and funded by the United States Administration on Aging, provides summary statistics on the elderly population in the United States. Each data file in STP 14A contains 483 population and 228 housing tables that present data for all persons and housing units. STP 14A supplies sample data weighted to represent the total population. In addition, the file contains 100-percent counts and unweighted sample counts for total persons and total housing units. Population tables include information on items such as race, Hispanic origin, sex, marital status, income, employment, and poverty across a number of age dimensions (age 60 and older). Housing tables detail information on items such as household type, vehicles owned, mobility, self-care, rent, and home value across a number of householder age dimensions (age 60 and older). STP 14A provides data for each state (and the District of Columbia) and their subareas in hierarchical sequence down to the census tract/block numbering area (BNA) level. Additionally, data are provided for the 668 specialized geographic units in the United States called PSAs (Planning and Service Areas) that are used by state and local agencies on aging for service delivery purposes.
