The RAND Center for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) Data Core Series is composed of a wide selection of analytical measures, encompassing a variety of domains, all derived from a number of disparate data sources. The CPHHD Data Core's central focus is on geographic measures for census tracts, counties, and Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) from two distinct geo-reference points, 1990 and 2000. The current study, Decennial Census Abridged, has two cross-sectional datasets, one longitudinal (interpolated) dataset, and one longitudinal (extrapolated) dataset containing a large number and variety of population and housing characteristics-related measures. These data are summarized at five different geographic levels: tract, county (FIPS), county (Geographic), MSA (Geographic), and state. The following types of measures constructed from the Census Bureau Population and Housing Characteristics data are included in the data for this collection: housing characteristics (stock, quality, ownership, costs, expenditures, occupancy, etc.), crowding (housing and population density), urbanicity, racial and ethnic composition, language, nationality, and citizenship. Further measures cover family/household structure, transportation, educational attainment, labor force, employment status, disabilities, income, poverty, and demographics (e.g., age, gender, and race).
