Data Collection Notes:
(1) 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. This is the reverse of
how Note 3 describes the interpretation of these variables. (2) The
age distribution for the 2,107 persons interviewed was ages 17-54 (N =
1,526), 55-64 (N = 239), 65-74 (N = 230), 75-84 (N = 100), and 85+ (N
= 12). (3) The data in this collection are superseded by the Wave 1
data in NATIONAL SURVEY OF BLACK AMERICANS, WAVES 1-4, 1979-1980,
1987-1988, 1988-1989, 1992 (ICPSR 6668)
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.

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.
Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
