Census of Population and Housing: Summary Tape File 4A, United States, 1980 (ICPSR 8282)

Principal Investigator(s): United States. Bureau of the Census

Summary:

This data collection contains tables from the 1980 Census of Population and Housing, which were tabulated for Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs), tracted portions of states outside SMSAs, and the following SMSA components: counties, places with 10,000 or more inhabitants, and census tracts. The tables primarily contain sample data inflated to represent the total population, plus 100-percent counts and unweighted sample counts of persons and housing units. Tabulated population items include household relationship, sex, race, age, marital status, Spanish origin, education, nativity, citizenship, language spoken at home, ancestry, children, place of residence in 1975, veteran status, work disability status, labor force status, travel time to work, means of transportation to work, industry, occupation, class of worker, income, and poverty status. Tables of housing variables cover number of units at address, presence of complete plumbing facilities, number of rooms, tenure (whether owned or rented), vacancy status, housing unit value, contract rent, units in structure, stories in structure and presence of a passenger elevator, year structure was built, year householder moved into unit, acreage, source of water, sewage disposal, heating equipment, house heating fuel, water heating fuel, cooking fuel, kitchen facilities, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, telephone in housing unit, air conditioning, number of automobiles, vans, and light trucks, and selected monthly owner costs (real estate taxes, property insurance, utilities, and mortgage payments). Two series of population and housing tables, A and B, are shown for each geographic unit. The A tables are tabulated once for the total population, while the B tables are repeated for the total population and up to six different race and Spanish origin groups: (1) white, (2) Black, (3) American Indian, Eskimo and Aleut, (4) Asian and Pacific Islander, (5) other race, and (6) Spanish origin. The data for each state are contained in a separate file. Altogether, 48 states and the District of Columbia are represented in the collection.

Data Type(s):    census/enumeration data

Data Collection Notes:

This collection is incomplete. There are no data for 2 states: Hawaii and Idaho. This collection will be updated in the future if these data are received.

Each table cell is represented by a single variable in the data. The Population A, Housing A, Population B, and Housing B tables comprise 5, 20, 11, and 8 records per case, respectively. Overall, there are 44 distinct records which contain some 8,600 variables. The number of records per case depends on the number of B table iterations. Cases with all six race/Spanish origin iterations have the maximum number of records and variables: 158 records and some 30,000 variables.

The case counts shown below are actually record counts.

Methodology

Sample:    There are two components to the Census: a 100-percent enumeration and a sample of approximately 19 percent of housing units. Basic demographic information, such as age, sex, and race, was collected from all persons and housing units. More detailed information was collected from the sample of housing units.

Data Source:

self enumerated questionnaires
