Version V1

Summary Tape File (STF) 1 consists of six sets of computer-readable data files containing detailed tabulations of the nation's population and housing characteristics produced from the 1980 Census. This series is comprised of STF 1A, STF 1B, STF 1C, STF 1D, STF 1E, and STF 1F. All six groups of files in the STF 1 have identical tables and formats presented in 59 tables consisting of 321 cells. The data items contained in the STF 1 files were also tabulated from the complete count or "100-percent" questions included on the 1980 Census. The data files differ only in geographic coverage. STF 1F, the School Districts file, is a special tabulation that provides summary level data for school districts by state (summary level 40) including the District of Columbia, and by county or county equivalent (summary level 41). Population items tabulated include age, race (provisional data), sex, marital status, Spanish origin (provisional data), household type, and household relationship. Housing items tabulated include occupancy/vacancy status, tenure, contract rent, value, condominium status, number of rooms, and plumbing facilities. Selected aggregates, means, and medians are also provided.
