Selected Subsets from Summary File 3

Prepared by the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research, these data collections consist of selected subsets extracted from the Census of Population and Housing, 2000, Summary File 3 (SF3). The SF3 data contain information compiled from the questions asked of a sample of persons and housing units enumerated in Census 2000. Population items include sex, age, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, household relationship, marital status, caregiving by grandparents, language and ability to speak English, ancestry, place of birth, citizenship status and year of entry to the United States, migration, place of work, journey to work, school enrollment, educational attainment, veteran status, disability, employment status, industry, occupation, class of worker, income, and poverty status. Housing items include housing unit vacancy status, housing unit tenure (owner/renter), number of rooms, number of bedrooms, year moved into unit, occupants per room, units in structure, year structure built, heating fuel, telephone service, plumbing and kitchen facilities, vehicles available, value of home, rent, and shelter costs. The information in SF3 is presented in 813 tables, one variable per table cell, plus additional variables with geographic information. Cases in the data are classified by levels of observation, known as "summary levels" in the Census Bureau's nomenclature, which served as the selection criteria for the subsets generated by ICPSR. Each subset comprises every case in one of 11 summary levels: the nation (summary level 010), states (summary level 040), Metropolitan Statistical Areas /Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Areas (summary level 380), Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas (summary level 385), places (summary level 160), counties (summary level 050), county subdivisions (summary level 060), whole census tracts (summary level 140), census tracts in places (summary level 158), 5-Digit ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (summary level 860), and block groups (summary level 150). The subsets are supplied as two ICPSR collections. ICPSR 13402 comprises the first 10 subsets and ICPSR 13576 contains the block group subset.
