Version V1

This file was prepared to acquaint users with the Summary Tape File 3A (STF 3A) record structure and to provide a test file for software development. The file contains no statistical data. The identification portion of each record contains geographic information for the Missouri test sites used in the 1988 Dress Rehearsal Census. The data cells contain "dummy" data consisting of the sequence number of the data cell within the record. The final record layout for all STF 3A files is shown in the identification and table portions of the data dictionary.
