Summary View help for Summary
This data collection contains current population estimates and per capita money income for counties and minor civil divisions in each state. These estimates were developed to provide updates of the data elements in Federal Revenue Sharing allocations under the state and local Fiscal Assistance Act of 1972. Population estimates recorded in the dataset are for July 1, 1978, while per capita income estimates are for 1969 and 1977. The units recorded in the data collection include counties, incorporated places, certain towns in New England, New York, and Wisconsin, and townships in other states. Certain Midwestern states may have active minor civil divisions in some counties, but not in others. In addition to these estimates, April 1, 1970, population and 1969 and 1975 per capita money income are included for each area. POPULATION AND INCOME ESTIMATES FOR THE UNITED STATES, 1969-1973 (ICPSR 0078) and POPULATION AND PER CAPITA INCOME ESTIMATES, 1969-1975 (ICPSR 7577) contain similar data for earlier years.
