The Public Use Microdata Samples (PUMS) contain person- and household-level information from the "long-form" questionnaires distributed to a sample of the population enumerated in the 1980 Census. The B Sample containing 1-percent data, consists of a file for each state and an additional file for households and persons residing in metropolitan areas that are too small to be separately identified and/or that cross state boundaries. The B Sample defines Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs) and county groups differently than in the A Sample [CENSUS OF POPULATION AND HOUSING, 1980 [UNITED STATES]: PUBLIC USE MICRODATA SAMPLE (A SAMPLE): 5-PERCENT SAMPLE (ICPSR 8101)].

The person record, in addition to containing demographic items such as sex, age, marital status, race, Spanish origin, income, occupation, transportation to work, and education.
