Data Collection Notes:
(1) Data for Wave 1 of this study supersede the data
released in NATIONAL SURVEY OF BLACK AMERICANS, 1979-1980 (ICPSR
8512). (2) Users should note that data for the "state and county"
codes (Variables 1405, 1407, and 1410) were entered in COUNTY/STATE
order and not STATE/COUNTY order, i.e., the first three digits are the
county code and the last two digits are the state code. This is the
reverse of how Note 3 of the codebook describes the interpretation of
these variables. (3) Variables for Wave 2 begin at V3001, Wave 3
begins at V4001, and Wave 4 begins at V5001. (4) The codebook and
questionnaires are provided as Portable Document Format (PDF)
files. The PDF file format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated
and can be accessed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Information on how
to obtain a copy of the Acrobat Reader is provided through the ICPSR
Website on the Internet.
National multistage probability sample. The sample is
self-weighting. Every Black American household in the continental
United States had an equal probability of being selected. Wave 1 was
administered to 2,107 respondents, Wave 2 to 951 respondents
(including 935 from Wave 1), Wave 3 to 793 respondents (including 779
from Wave 2), and Wave 4 to 659 respondents (including 1 from Wave 1,
28 from Wave 2, and 623 from Wave 3).

Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Performed consistency checks.
Standardized missing values.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
