Published: Feb 16, 1992
This file contains 1980 Census data for the 679 Planning and Service Areas (PSAs) in the United States and Puerto Rico. Data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and for each of the approximately 4,000 counties and county equivalents in the United States and Puerto Rico were subsetted from the 1980 Census of Population and Housing, Summary Tape File 1 (STF 1) and aggregated to the PSA level. The file contains 312 substantive data variables organized in the form of 53 "tables", as well as geographic codes for region, state code, PSA, and land area. The remaining STF 1 geographic codes and the six tables representing median values are not included. Data for each PSA include ethnicity and age of residents, housing units, and units rented.
