ABSTRACT
Universe

     The universe is the civilian noninstitutional population of the United
 States living in housing units and male members of the Armed Forces living
 in civilian housing units on a military base or in a household not on a
 military base. A probability sample is used in selecting housing units.

Description

     This file, also known as the Annual Demographic File, provides the usual
 monthly labor force data, but in addition, provides supplemental data on
 work experience, income, noncash benefits, and migration. Comprehensive
 information is given on the employment status, occupation, and industry of
 persons years old and over.  Additional data for persons 15 years old and
 older are available concerning weeks worked and hours per week worked,
 reason not working full time, total income and income components, and
 residence on March 1, 1986. Data on employment and income refer to the
 preceding year demographic data refer to the time of the survey.
     This file also contains data covering nine noncash income sources: food
 stamps, school lunch program, employer-provided group health insurance plan,
 employer-provided pension plan, personal health insurance, Medicaid,
 Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance.
 Characteristics such as age, sex, race, household relationship, and Spanish
 origin are shown for each person in the household enumerated.
Geographic Coverage

     State of residence is uniquely identified as well as census geographic
 division and region. The 113 largest metropolitan statistical areas (CMSA's
 or MSA's), an additional 89 selected MSA's, 66 selected PMSA's, and 30
 central cities in multi-central city MSA's or PMSA's are also uniquely
 identified.1 confidentiality restrictions, indicators are provided for
 MSA-PMSA/non-MSA-PMSA, central city/noncentral city, farm/nonfarm, and
 MSA/CMSA size.

Related Printed Reports

     Data from the March Current Population Survey are published most
 frequently in the Current Population Reports P-20 and P-60 series. These
 reports are available from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government
 Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Forthcoming reports will be cited
 in CENDATA, the yMonthl Product Announcement (MPA), and the Bureau of the
 Census halo and Guide.

Related Machine-Readable Data Files

     A public use edition of the Current Population Survey, March file is
 available for each year since 1968. For 1980 and 1984 two March files are
 available for each year. The first March 1980 file contains estimates based
 on 1970 population counts and should be used for historical comparisons
 ending reweighted March 1980 file contains estimates based on results of the
 1980 census and should be used for comparisons between 1981 and 1984.
     Beginning in April 1984, the CPS sample was gradually replaced by a new
 sample. Thus, a second March 1984 file was created and should be used for
 comparison with 1985 and forward files. Some non-March data also are
 available from 1968 to present. For more information, request the Data
 Developments on the Current Population Survey from Data User Services

OVERVIEW

Introduction

    The Current Population Survey (CPS) is the source of the official
 Government statistics on employment and unemployment. The CPS has been
 conducted monthly for over 40 years. Currently, we interview about 56,500
 households monthly, scientifically selected on the basis of area of residence
 to represent the Nation as a whole, individual States, and other specified
 areas. Each household is interviewed once a month for four consecutive months
 one year, and again for the corresponding time period a year later. This
 technique enables us to obtain month-to-month and year-to-year comparisons
 at a reasonable cost while minimizing the inconvenience to anyone household.
     Although the main purpose of the survey is to collect information on the
 employment situation, a very important secondary purpose is to collect
 information on the employment situation, a very inportant secondary purpose
 is to collect information on the demographic status of the population,
 information such as age, sex, race, marital status, educational attainment,
 and family structure. From time to time additional questions are included on
 such important subjects as health, education, income, and previous work
 experience.  The statistics resulting from these questions serve to update
 similar information collected through the decennial census, and are used by
 Government policy makers and legislators as important indicators of our
 Nation's economic situation and for planning and evaluating many Government
 programs.
    The CPS provides current estimates of the economic status and activities
 of the population of the United States.  Because it is not possible to
 develop one or two overall figures (such as the number of unemployed) that
 would adequately describe the whole complex of labor market phenomena, the
 CPS is designed to provide a large amount of detailed and supplementary data.
 Such data are made available to meet a wide variety of needs on the part of
 users of labor market information.
    Thus, the CPS is the only source of monthly estimates of total employment
 (both farm and nonfarm); nonfarm self-employed persons, domestics, and unpaid
 helpers in nonfarm family enterprises; wage and salary employees; and,
 finally, estimates of total unemployment.
    It provides the only available distribution of workers by the number of
 hours worked (as distinguished from aggregate or average hours for an
 industry), permitting separate analyses of part-time workers, workers on
 overtime, etc. The survey is also the only comprehensive current source of
 information on the occupation of workers and the industries in which they
 work.  Information is available from the survey not only for persons
 currently in the labor force but also for those who are outside the labor
 force.  The characteristics of such persons - whether married women with or
 without young children, disabled persons, students, older retired workers,
 etc., can be determined. Information on their current desire for work, their
 past work experience their intentions as to job seeking are also available.
    The March CPS, also known as the Annual Demographic File, contains the
 basic monthly demographic and labor force data described above, plus
 additional data on work experience, income, noncash benefits, and migration.

CPS Sample

    The CPS sample is based on the civilian noninstitutional population of
 the United States. The sample is located in 729 sample areas comprising
 1,973 counties and independent cities with coverage in every State and in
 the District of Columbia.
    In all, some 70,000 housing units or other living quarters are assigned
 for interview each month; about 56,500 of them containing approximately
 117,500 persons 14 years old and over are interviewed.  Also included are
 demographic data for approximately 31,500 children 0-13 years old and 650
 Armed Force civilians either on or off base within these households. The
 remainder of the assigned housing units are found to be vacant, converted to
 nonresidential use, contain persons with residence elsewhere, or are not
 interview because the residents are not found at home after repeated calls,
 are temporarily absent, or are unavailable for other reasons. Approximately
 13,500 noninterview households are present each month. The resulting file
 size is approximately 163,000 records.  In March of each year supplemental
 data are collected for male Armed Forces members residing with their families
 in civilian housing units or on a military base. The Armed Forces members,
 however, are not asked the monthly labor force questions or the supplemental
 question experience. In addition, the March CPS is supplemented with a sample
 of Spanish households identified the previous November. This results in the
 addition of about 2,500 households in the March CPS. The inclusion of the
 additional sample of Spanish households began in 1976. A more precise
 explanation regarding the the CPS sample design is provided in Technical
 Paper 40, The Current Population Reports: Design and Methodology.
    For a more detailed discussion about the basic labor force data gathered
 on a monthly basis in the CPS survey, see the Bureau of Labor Statistics
 Report No. 463 and the Current Population Report P-23, No. 62, issued
 jointly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Bureau of the Census in
 October, 1976, and entitled Concepts and Methods Used In Labor Statistics
 derived from the Current Population Survey.

Relationship of Current Population Survey Files to Publications

    Each month, a significant amount of information about the labor force is
 published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in the Emplovment and Earnings
 and Monthly Labor Review Reports.
    As mentioned previously, the CPS also serves as a vehicle for supplemental
 inquiries on subjects other than employment which are periodically added to
 the questionnaire.  From the basic and supplemental data the Bureau of the
 Census issues four series of publications under the general title Current
 Population Reports:
      P-20 Population Characteristics
      P-23 Special Studies
      P-27 Farm Population
      P-60 Consumer Income

 Of particular interest to users of the March microdata file would be those
 reports based on information collected in March. These reports include the
 following titles:

      P-20 Population Profile of the United States: (Year)
      P-20 Household and Family Characteristics: March (Year)
      P-20 Households, Families, Marital Status, and Living Arrangements:
            March (Year)
      P-20 Geographical Mobility (Years)
      P-20 Educational Attainment in the United States (Years)
      P-20 Persons of Spanish Origin in the United States (Year)
      P-60 Money Income and Poverty Status of Families and Persons in the
            United States: (Year)
      P-60 Characteristics of the Population Below the Poverty Level: (Year)
      P-60 Characteristics of Households Receiving Selected Noncash Benefits:
            (Year)

    All Current Population Reports may be obtained by subscription from the
 U.S. Government Printing Office.  Subscriptions are available as follows:

Questionnaire Coverage

    Questionnaire facsimilies of March 1987 CPS are shown on pages 109 to 125
 in this documentation.  CPS-1 items 19-26B shown on pages 112 and 113 of
 this document are not asked of Armed Forces members but only of civilians 14
 years old and older. This part of the questionnaire is referred to as the
 monthly (basic) labor force section because these questions are asked every
 month.
    CPS-665 items 29-94 shown on pages 115-125 of this document are referred
 to as March supplement items because these questions are asked only in
 households in the March CPS sample. Please note that questions 29-47E on work
 experience are not asked of Armed Forces members.  Beginning with the March
 1980 supplement data are processed for the population 15 years old and older.
    Certain data items appearing on both the monthly (basic) questionnaire
 and the March supplement questionnaire may not have the same meaning. To
 avoid any misunderstandings, the user should refer to the glossary of this
 documentation.

File Structure

    There is a household record for each household or group quarters. The
 household record is followed by one of three possible structures:

 A.    If the household contains related persons and is not a group quarters
       household:
   1.  The family record appears next followed by person records for members
       of the family who are not also members of a related subfamily. The
       person records would be ordered: family househoIder, spouse of family,
       householder, children in the family, and other relatives of the family
       householder.
   2.  The above records may be followed by one or more related subfamily
       records, each related subfamily record being followed immediately by
       person records for members of that related subfamily. The person
       records would be ordered:  reference person of the related subfamily,
       spouse of subfamily reference person, and children of subfamily
       reference person.
   3.  The above records may be followed by one or more unrelated subfamily
       records, each unrelated subfamily record being followed immediately by
       person records for members of that unrelated subfamily.  The person
       records would be ordered:  unrelated subfamily reference person,
       spouse of su reference person, children of subfamily reference person,
       and other relatives of the subfamily reference person.
   4.  The above records may be followed by one or more persons living with
       nonrelatives family records, each to be followed by the person record
       for the unrelated individual it represents. (See Figure 1.)
 B.    If the household contains a householder with no relatives and is not a
       group quarters household:
   1.  The family record for the nonfamily householder is followed immediately
       by the person record for that nonfamily householder.
   2.  These records may be followed by one or more unrelated subfamily
       records, each unrelated subfamily record being followed immediately by
       the person records for members of that unrelated subfamily.
   3.  These records may be followed by one or more family records for persons
       living with nonrelatives, each person living with nonrelatives family
       record being followed immediately by the person record for that person
       living with nonrelatives. (See Figure 2.)
 C.    If the household is a group quarters, each person is defined as a
       person living with nonrelatives. There will be a family record
       followed by a person record for each person in the group quarters.

Geographic Limitations

    In July 1985, the CPS microdata files began carrying the metropolitan
 statistical area definitions announced by the Office of Management and Budget
 on June 30, 1984.  The new CPS estimates for the total metropolitan
 population have consistently been higher than independent estimates of the
 total metropolit prepared by the Census Bureau; the new CPS nonmetropolitan
 estimates have been lower than the independent estimates.  The magnitude of
 the monthly differences has varied from 900,000 to 2.5 million persons over
 the past year, so that the proportion of the population living in
 metropolitan area CPS has ranged from 0.4 to 1.0 percentage points higher
 than the independent estimate. The difference in level between the two sets
 of estimates is partially attributable to the basic CPS sample design, which,
 becau sampling variability, includes an oversample of metropolitan households
 and an undersample of nonmetropolitan households. The monthly variations
 result from the exit and entrance of rotation groups, each with slightly
 different metropolitan-nonmetropolitan proportions, into the sample. The
 apparent over of metropolitan and underestimation of nonmetropolitan
 population in the CPS relative to the Census Bureau's independent estimates
 should be taken into account when using the data. Because of the monthly
 variation these estimates, month-to-month comparisons of metropolitan and
 nonmetropolitan estimates should be interpreted with caution.
    One other set of estimates that can be produced from CPS microdata files
 beginning in October 1985 should be treated with caution.  These are
 estimates for individual metropolitan areas.  The change in Census Bureau
 confidentiality rules allowing identification of areas with populations of
 100,000 or more instead of 250,000 has produced a situation where we now
 identify numerous small metropolitan areas on the CPS data files. Although
 estimates for the larger areas such as New York, Los Angeles, and so forth,
 should be fairly accurate and valid for a multitude of uses, estimates for
 the smaller metropolitan areas (those with populations under 500,000)
 should be used with caution because of the relatively large sampling
 variability associated with these estimates.
    It should be kept in mind that the sample design and methods of weighting
 CPS data are geared towards producing estimates for the entire Nation.
 Consequently, data for states are not as reliable as national data, and
 the file will lose some of its utility in certain applications. For
 further discussion of such considerations, the user should consult The
 Current Population Survey: Design and Methodoloav (Technical Paper 40, U.S.
 Bureau of the Census).
    The nature of the work done by each individual investigator using the
 microdata file will determine to what extent his/her requirements for
 precision will allow using some of the smaller geographic areas identified
 on the file.

Weights

    For all CPS data files a single weight is prepared and used to compute
 the monthly labor force status estimates. An additional weight was prepared
 for the earnings universe which roughly corresponds to wage and salary
 workers in the two outgoing rotations. This is explained below in the
 section on earnings data. However, the difference in content of the March
 CPS supplement requires the presentation of additional weights: a household
 weight, a family weight, and a March supplement weight.  In this section we
 briefly describe the construction and use of these weights.  Chapter 5 of
 Technical paper 40, me Current Population Survey: Design and Methodology
 provides documentation of the weighting procedures for the CPS both with and
 without supplement questions.
    The final weight, which is the product of several adjustments, is used to
 produce population estimates for the various items covered in the regular
 monthly CPS. This weight is constructed from the basic weight for each
 person, which represents the probability of selection for the survey.  The
 basic weight is adjusted for special sampling situations and failure to
 obtain interviews from eligible households (noninterview adjustment). A two-
 stage ratio estimation procedure adjusts the sample population to the known
 distribution of the entire population. This two-stage ratio estimation
 process produces factors which are applied to the basic weight(after the
 special weighting and noninterview adjustments are made) and results in the
 final wei with each record.  In summary, the final weight is the product of:
 (1) the basic weight, (2) adjustments for special weighting, (3)
 noninterview adjustment, (4) first stage ratio adjustment factor, and (5)
 second stage ratio adjustment factor. This final weight should be used when
 producing estimates from the basic CPS data.
    Differences in the questionnaire, sample and data uses for the March CPS
 supplement result in the need for additional adjustment procedures to
 produce what is called the March supplement weight. The sample for the
 March CPS supplement is expanded to include male members of the Armed Forces
 who are living In civilian housing or with the family on a military base, as
 well as additional Spanish households which are not Included in the monthly
 labor force estimates.
    The expanded sample and the need to have a husband and wife receive the
 same weight has resulted in a weighting system which produces the March
 supplement weight.  The March supplement weight should be used for producing
 estimates from March supplement data.
    Finally, household and family weights are the weights assigned from the
 householder or reference person after all adjustments have been made and
 should be used when tabulating estimates of families-households.

Earnings Data

    Beginning in 1982, usual hourly and weekly earnings data appear on the
 Annual Demographic File (ADF) for that portion of the population roughly
 corresponding to wage and salary workers (self-employed persons in
 incorporated businesses are excluded, although they are normally included
 with the wage and population). These data are now collected on a monthly
 basis in the two outgoing rotation groups as part of the basic CPS labor
 force interview.
    Since the intent of the regular collection of earnings data was to
 initiate a family earnings data series, all personsin the two outgoing
 rotations receive an "earnings weight," even if they are not eligible for
 the earnings item. The earnings weight is a simple ratio-estimation to the
 person's labor force status by age, race, and sex.  When tabulating estimates
 of earnings based on basic CPS data, use the earnings weight.
   Further information on this earnings series is contained in "Technical
 Description of the Quarterly Data on Weekly Earnings from the Current
 Population Survey," BLS Report #601, July 1980. This report is available on
 request from the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics,
 Washigton, D.C. 20212. Attn: Office of Inquiries and Correspondence.

  NOTE:  For 1982 and 1983, usual weekly earnings are not present for
         individuals who were not paid on an hourly basis.
CHANGES IN CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY WEIGHTING

    The following describes three changes in the CPS weighting process which
 were first implemented with the March 1981 CPS supplement. As a result of
 these changes, caution should be used when comparing 1981 through 1986
 estimates with those from earlier years.

Changes in Race Cateaories for Controlling Independent Pop Ests

    Race categories are used in ratio-estimation of the sample estimates to
 known distributions. Before 1981, the Black and other-not-White sample
 estimates were separately adjusted to known totals for those two populations.
 Then these two groups were combined for the final adjustment in the weighting
 process which adjusted to independent estimates for White/not-White
 populations.
    Starting in 1981, the March file represents ratio estimates to Black and
 not-Black totals; moreover, a separate adjustment is not made for
 other-not-White. Analysis of results from the 1980 census indicated
 that reporting of race was not directly comparable with CPS because of
 different data collection procedures. As a result, it wasdetermined that more
 precise estimates could be derived for Black and not-Black populations as
 compar those available for White and not-White populations.
    Starting in 1985, the March file represents ratio estimates to
 White/Black/Other and Hispanic/Nonhispanjc. This new procedure provides
 better estimates of the Hispanic population and more detailed controls of the
 non-Black population.

March CPS Labor Force Estimates

    Before 1981, an adjustment was made so that certain March supplement labor
 force estimates would be identical to the same estimates in the regular March
 Emplovment and Earninas publication.  It was felt,however, that this
 procedure hurt the reliability of many March supplement estimates and that
 users' needs f consistency between different publications were limited enough
 to warrant elimination of this stage of weighting.
 Beginning in 1981, labor force estimates taken from the March CPS supplement
 file will not be in absolute agreement with the published March labor force
 estimates.

Introduction of 1980 Decennial Census Population Controls

    The ratio estimation procedure used to produce the weights carried on the
 March CPS file involves, in part, the adjustment of sample results to
 independent estimates of the population.  These independent estimates are
 computed by updating the civilian noninstitutional population counts derived
 from the latest decennial census.  March CPS sample results for 1972 through
 1980 were adjusted to independent estimates derived from the 1970 census.
 March CPS sample results from 1981 forward are based on the results of the
 1980 cens. The population counts as of April 1, 1980 from the 1980 census
 differ substantially from the independent estimates for the same date based
 on the 1970 census. For example, the 1980-based estimate of the civilian
 noninstitutional population on April 1, 1980 was 222,420,441 compared with
 the 1970-based estimate for the same date of 217,400,244.  Furthermore,
 while analysis is continuing, it is generally believed that the 1980
 census reduced the undercount experienced in 1970 for the population as a
 whole and most notably for minority groups. As a result, differences for
 subpopulation groups may be disproportionately greater than that for the
 total population.

Impact of Processing Changes

 1/ Based on 1980 census estimates.
 2/ Based on extrapolated 1970 census estimates.

 NOTE:    A version of the March 1980 file is available with 1980-based
  weights.  This file provides the necessary bridge data for those users
  requiring more detailed direct comparisions between 1970- and 1980-based
  weights.

New Weighting Procedure
    The March 1986 Annual Demographic File reflects the use of a new weighting
 procedure introduced into the monthly CPS estimation procedure beginning in
 January 1985. Fields affected are those associated with March supplement
 weights: HI 96, Fl 96, and PI 18.
    Because the new estimation procedure may have an impact on any time series
 analysis, a reweighted 1984 file is available to bridge estimates.
 Introduction of 1980 Census Industry and Occupation (1/0) Classification
 Systems

    The 1980 census 1/0 codes were implemented for the first time in the
 Current Population Survey in January I 983. Differences between the codes
 used in 1970 and those used in 1980 have little effect on industry related
 data; however, the implementation of the new codes for occupation categories
 poses a problem in historical data analysis.
    Differences between the 1970 and 1980 occupation classification systems
 affect classification at all levels. Commonly used terms such as
 white-collar, blue-collar, professional and technical, craft worker,
 and operative occupations have been eliminated.  These identifiers have been
 replaced with new categories representing conceptual as well as language
 changes.  The following table compares the 1970 and 1980 occupation
 categories at the broadest levels of aggregation.

Occupational Groupings Based on the 1970 and 1980

 Census Classification Systems
                     1970

           Clerical workers

        Blue-collar workers
           Craft and kindred workers

           Operatives, except transport
           Transport equipment operatives
           Nonfarm laborers

           Service, except private household and protective

       Precision production, craft, and repair

       Operators, fabricators, and laborers
           Machine operators, assemblers, and inspectors
           Transportation and material moving occupations
           Handlers, equipment cleaners, helpers, and
            laborers

       Farming, forestry, and fishing

 While the new occupation classification system allows comparisons between
 the March 1985 ADF, the 1980 census, and other postcensus data sets, its
 incorporation restricts comparisons with earlier ADF files.
 Further information regarding the changes between the 1970 and 1980
 classification systems is provided in the February I 983 issue of Emnlovment
 and Earninas published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. A nine-page list
 of conversion factors used for the occupation codes in the CPS is available
 from Data User Services Division, Customer Services, Bureau of the Census.
 This list contains each 1970 detailed occupation category and the 1980
 major occupation category (or categories with percentages for each) into
 which it shou shows which detailed occupation categories belong to the I 3
 major occupation categories. This list can be used to make conversions in
 microdata files or in data aggregated by I 970 detailed codes.
    Entitled "CPS Occupation Categories:  Detailed 1970 and Major 1980
 Classifications," the conversion factors cost $5 and are available from
 Customer Services (301 /763A1 00).
    Technical questions regarding the limitations of the conversion factors
 and the guidelines on data presentation should be directed to the Labor Force
 Statistics Branch of the Bureau's Population Division at 301/763-5144.

RELATIONSHIP OF QUESTION ITEMS TO FIELD NAMES ON ANNUAL DEMO FILE

General Information

 In March I 979 the Census Bureau introduced a new income supplement
 (CPS-665). However, the processing system has never been updated to reflect
 the new questionnaire. Instead, income items on the questionnaire were
 reformatted so that the existing processing system could be utilized. The
 charts on the show how the questionnaire items are reformatted into income
 fields on the annual demographic file.  The first chart (on page 30) lists
 the item number on the questionnaire and then gives the income type and name
 on the file.  The second chart (on page 30A) lists the field name on the
 file and then gives the income type and questionnaire item number which
 shows more clearly all the income types that may be included under the same
 variable on the file.

Subject Concepts

Age through Food Stamps

 Age. Age classification is based on the age of the person at his/her last
 birthday. The adult universe (i.e., population of marriageable age) is
 comprised of persons 15 years old and over for March supplement data and
 14 years and over for CPS labor force data. Prior to 1980, the adult
 Universe was 14 y March supplement data.

 Annuities. (See Income.)

 Armed Forces.  Armed Forces members enumerated in off-base housing or on
 base with their families are included on the CPS data file in March. Only
 supplemental data on income are included for Armed Forces members.

 Base Weight. The constant weight assigned to the sample (inverse of the
 sampling fraction) which is adjusted to produce the final weight.

 Civilian Labor Force. (See Labor Force.)

 Class of Worker. This refers to the broad classification of the person's
 employer. On the March file, these broad classifications for current jobs are
 private, government, self-employed, without pay, and never worked. Private
 and government workers are considered "wage and salary workers;" this
 classification scheme includes self-employed, incorporated persons in with
 "private" workers.  For the longest job held last year, this class of
 worker scheme includes private; government by level--Federal, State, and
 local; self-empl farm/nonfarm; and without pay.  The wage and salary category
 for longest job held includes private,government (all levels), and self
 -employed, incorporated. Dividends. (See Income.)

 Duration of Unemployment.  Duration of unemployment represents the length of
 time (through the current survey week) during which persons classified as
 unemployed are continuously looking for work. For personson layoff, duration
 of unemployment represents the number of full weeks since the termination of
 their recent employment. A period of two weeks or more during which a person
 is employed or ceased looking for work is considered to break the continUity
 of the present period of seeking work.  Average duration is an arithmetic
 mean computed from a distribution by single weeks of unemployment.

 Earners, Number of. The file includes all persons 15 years old and over
 in the household with $1 or more in wages and salaries, or $1 or more of a
 loss in net income from farm or nonfarm self-employment during the preceding
 year.

 Earnings Weight. Each person record allows for an earnings weight for
 current earnings.

 Education. (See Years of School Completed.)

 Emnloved. (See Labor Force.)

 Energy Assistance Program.  The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program provides
 financial assistance to qualified households to help them pay heating costs.
 The program is funded by the Federal government and administered by the
 States under broad guidelines. In some States a household may automatically
 be eligibl for this program if the household receives (1) Aid to Families
 with dependent Children, (2) Food Stamps, (3)Supplemental Security Income
 (551), and (4) certain Veterans' benefits.

    The energy assistance questions were asked for the first time in 1982.
 Questions asked in the March 1987 survey included (1) recipiency since
 October 1, 1985, (2) total amount received during the reference period, (3)
 the principal type of heating fuel used by the household, and (4) if the
 household was without heat because of inability to pay the heating fuel bill.

 ESR (Employment Status Recode).  This classification is available for each
 civilian 14 years old and over according to his/her responses to the monthly
 (basic) labor force items in March.

 Family. A family is a group of two persons or more (one of whom is the
 householder) residing together and related by birth, marriage, or adoption.
 All such persons (including related subfamily members) are considered as
 members of one family.  Beginning with the 1980 CPS, unrelated subfamilies
 (referred t secondary families) are no longer included in the count of
 families, nor are the members of unrelated subfamilies included in the count
 of family members.

 Family Household.  A family household is a household maintained by a family
 (as defined above), and may include among the household members any unrelated
 persons (unrelated subfamily members and/or secondary individuals) who may
 be residing there. The number of family households is equal to the number of
 families. The count of family household members differs from the count of
 family members, however, in that the family household members include all
 persons living in the household, whereas family members include only the
 householder and his/her relatives. (See the definition of Family).
 Family Weight. The weight on the family record is the March supplement weight o
 the householder or reference person.

 Farm Self-Employment Net Income. The term is defined as net money income
 (gross receipts minus operating expenses) from the operation of a farm by a
 person on his own account, as an owner, as a renter, or as asharecropper.
 Gross receipts include the value of all products sold, government crop loans,
 money from the rental of farm equipment to others, and incidental receipts
 from the sale of wood, sand, gravel, etc.

    Operating expenses include cost of feed, fertilizer, seed, and other
 farming supplies, cash wages paid to farm hands, depreciation charges,
 cash rent, interest on farm mortgages, farm building repairs, farm taxes
 (not State and Federal income taxes), etc. The value of fuel, food, or other
 farm products used for household living is not included as part of net
 income. Inventory changes are considered in determining net income only
 when they are accounted for in replies based on income tax returns or other
 official records which reflect inventory changes.

 Final Weight. Used in tabulating monthly labor force items. This weight
 should not be used when tabulating March Supplement data.

 Food Stamps. The Food Stamp Act of 1977 was enacted for the purpose of
 increasing the food purchasing power of eligible households through the use
 of coupons to purchase food. The Food and Nutrition Service ofthe U.S.
 Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers the Food Stamp Program
 through State and l welfare offices.  The Food Stamp Program is the major
 national income support program which provides benefits to all low-income
 and low-resource households regardless of household characteristics (e.g.,
 sex, age, disability, etc.).  The questions on participation in the Food
 Stamp Program in the March 1987 CPS were designed to identify households
 in which one or more of the current members received food stamps during
 1986. Once a food stamp household was identified, a question was asked to
 determine the number of current household members covered by food stamps
 during 1986. Questions were also asked about the number ofmonths food stamps
 were received during 1986 and the total face value of all food stamps received
 du period.

Full-Time Worker through Income

 Full-Time Worker.  Persons on full-time schedules include persons working
 35 hours or more, persons who worked 1-34 hours for noneconomic reasons
 (e.g., illness) and usually work full-time, and persons "with a job but not
 at work" who usually work full-time.

 Group Health Insurance Coverage.  Civilian persons 15 years old and over who
 worked in 1986 and who participated in group health insurance plans provided
 by the employer or union were asked whether part or allof the health
 insurance premiums were paid for by the union or employer and the extent of
 persons cover Additional questions were asked to determine if sample persons
 were covered by any other type of health insurance plan.  These items are
 intended to measure retirees covered by continuing employer provided coverage
 and persons who purchased coverage on their own.

 Group Quarters. Group quarters are nOninstitutional living arrangement5 for
 groups not living in cOnventional housing units or groups living in housing
 Units containing nine or more persons unrelated to the person in charge.

 Head Versus Householder. Beginning with the March 1980 CPS, the Bureau
 of the Census discontinued the use of the terms "head of household" and
 "head of family." Instead, the terms "householder' and "family householder"
 are used.

 Highest Grade of School Attended. (See Years of School Completed.)

 Hours of Work. Hours of work statistics relate to the actual number of
 hours worked during the survey week. For example, a person who normally
 works 40 hours a week but who is off on the Veterans Day holiday is reported
 as working 32 hours even though he is paid for the holiday.

     For persons working in more than one job, the figures related to the
 number of hours worked in all jobs during the week. However, all the hours
 are credited to the major job.

 Household. A household consists of all the persons who occupy a house,
 an apartment, or other group of rooms, or a room, which constitutes a housing
 unit. A group of rooms or a single room is regarded as ahousing unit when
 it is occupied as separate living quarters; that is, when the occupants do
 not live any other person in the structure, and when there is direct access
 from the outside or through a common hall. The count of households excludes
 persons living in group quarters, such as rooming houses, military barracks,
 and institutions.  Inmates of institutions (mental hospitals, rest homes,
 cOrrectional institutions, etc.) are not included in the survey.

 Household Weight. Household weight is the March Supplement weight of the
 householder. Householder. The householder refers to the person (or one of
 the persons) in whose name the housing Unit is owned or rented (maintained)
 or, if there is no such person, any adult member, excluding roomers,
 boarders, or paid employees. If the house is Owned or rented jointly by a
 married couple, the householder may be either the husband or the wife.  The
 person designated as the householder is the "reference person" to whom the
 relationship of all other household members, if any, is recorded.

 Householder With No Other Relatives In Household.  A householder who
 has no relatives living in the household. This is the entry for a person
 living alone. Another example is the designated householder of anapartment
 shared by two or more unrelated individuals.

 Householder With Other Relatives (lncludina use in Household. The person
 designated as householder if he/she has one or more relatives (including
 spouse) living in the household. Husband in Armed Forces. When a woman is
 reported as married but her husband is not enumerated as amember of the same
 household, an additional question is asked to determine whether her husband
 is in Armed Forces. This additional probe is unique to the March CPS only.
 Women who are reported as separated are not asked the additional question.

 Income. For each person in the sample who is 15 years old and over,
 questions are asked on the amount of money income received in the preceding
 calendar year from each of the following sources: (1) money wages orsalary;
 (2) net income from nonfarm self-employment; (3) net income from farm self
 -employment Security or railroad retirement; (5) Supplemental Security income;
 (6) public assistance or welfare payments; (7)interest (on savings or bonds);
 (8) dividends, Income from estates or trusts, or net rental Income; (9)
 veterans payment or unemployment and workmen's compensation; (10) private
 pensions or government employee pensions; (11) alimony Or child support,
 regular contributions from persons not living in the household, and other
 periodic income.

     Although income statistics refer to receipts during the preceding year,
 the characteristics of the person such as age, labor force status, etc., and
 the composition of households refer to the time of the survey. The income of
 the household does not include amounts received by persons who are members
 of the household during all or part of the income year if these persons no
 longer resided with the household at the time of enumeration. Onthe other
 hand, household income includes amounts reported by persons who did not
 reside with household during the income year but who were members of the
 household at the time of enumeration.

     Data on consumer income collected in the CPS by the Bureau of the Census
 cover money income received (exclusive of certain money receipts such as
 capital gains) before payments for personal income taxes, SocialSecurity,
 union dues, Medicare deductions, etc.  Also, money income does not reflect
 the fact households receive part of their income in the form of nonmoney
 transfers such as food stamps, health benefits, subsidized housing, and
 energy assistance; that many farm households receive nonmoney income in the
 form of rent free housing and goods produced and consumed on the farm; or
 that nonmoney income is received by some nonfarm residents that often takes
 the form of the use of business transportation and facilities, or full or
 partial contributions for retirement programs, medical and educational
 expenses, etc. be considered when comparing income levels.  Moreover,
 readers should be aware that for many different reasons there is a tendency
 in household surveys for respondents to under report their income.  From an
 analysis of independently derived income estimates, it has been determined
 that wages and salaries tend to be much better reported than such income
 types as public assistance, Social Security, and net income from interest,
 dividends, rents, etc.

Income Sources through Labor Force

 Income Sources - Wages and Salary. Money wages or salary is defined as total
 money earnings received for work performed as an employee during the income

 employed, current job is the job held in the reference week (the week before
 the survey). Persons with two or more jobs are classified inthe job at which
 they worked the most hours during the reference week.  The unemployed are
 classif according to their latest full-time job lasting two or more weeks or
 by the job (either full-time or part-time). The I & O questions are also
 asked of persons not in the labor force who are in the fourth and eighth
 months in sample and who have worked in the last five years. The Occupation
 /industry classification system for the 1980 Census of Population was used
 to code March CPS data beginning with the March 1983 file.

     ~ust, Occupation, and Class of Worker-Lonqest Job (supplement -a. Longest
 job applies to the job held longest during the preceding year for persons who
 worked that year, without regard to their current employment status.

 Job Seekers. All unemployed persons who made specific efforts to find a job
 sometime during the 4-week period preceding the survey week.

 Keeping House. Persons are classified as keeping house if they engage in own
 housework. This is one of the "not in labor force" classifications--
 employment status recode (ESR) = 4.
 Labor Force. Persons are classified as in the labor force if they are
 employed, unemployed, or in the Armed Forces during the survey week.  The
 "civilian labor force" includes all civilians classified as employed or
 unemployed. The file includes labor force data for civilians age 14 and over.
 However, the official definition of the civilian labor force is age 16 and
 over.

     1.  Employed.  Employed persons comprise (1) all civilians who,
 during the survey week, do any work at all as paid employees or in
 their own business or profession, or on their own farm, or who work
 15 hours or more as unpaid workers on a farm in a business operated
 by a member of the family; and (2) all those who have jobs but who
 are not working because of illness, bad weather, vacation, or labor-
 management dispute, or because they are taking time off personal
 reasons, whether or not they are seeking other jobs. These would
 have an Employment Status Recode (ESR) of 1 or 2 respective
 character 12 of the person record which designates "at work" and
 but not at work. Each employed person is counted only once. Those
 persons who held more than one job are counted in the job at which
 the greatest number of hours during the survey week.  If they worked
 an equal number of hours at more than one job, they are counted at
 the job they held the longest.

    2.   Unemnloyed. Unemployed persons are those civilians who, during the
 survey week, have no employment but are available for work, and (1) have
 engaged in any specific job seeking activity within the past 4 weeks such as
 registering at a public or private employment office, meeting with
 prospective employers, checking with friends or relatives, placing or
 answering advertisements, writing letters of application, or being on a
 union or professional register; (2) are waiting to be called back to a job
 from which they had been laid off; or (3) are waiting to report to a new
 wage or salary job within 30 days. These persons would have an ESR code of
 3 in character 12 of the person record. The unemployed includes job leavers,
 ob losers, new job entrants, and job reentrants.

         a.     Job Leavers.  Persons who quit or otherwise terminate their
 employment voluntarily and immediately begin looking for work.

         b.     Job Losers.  Persons whose employment ends involuntarily,
 who immediately begin looking for work, and those persons who are already
 on layoff.

         c.     New Job Entrants. Persons who never worked at a full-time
 job lasting two weeks or longer.

         d.     Job Reentrants.  Persons who previously worked at a full-
 time job lasting two weeks or longer but are out of the labor force prior to
 beginning to look for work.

    3.   Not in Labor Force. All civilians 14 years old and over who are not
 classified as employed or unemployed. These persons are further classified
 as major activity:  keeping house, going to school, unable to work because
 oflong-term physical or mental illness, and other. The "other" group
 includes, for the most part, retired persons.  Persons who report doing
 unpaid work in a family farm or business for less than 15 hours are also
 classified as not in the labor force.

       For persons not in the labor force, data on previous work experience,
 intentions to seek work again, desire for a job at the time of interview,
 and reasons for not looking for work are asked only in those households
 that are in the fourth and eighth months of the sample, i.e., the "outgoing"
 groups, those which had been in the sample for three previous months and
 would not be in for the subsequent month.

       These items are asked in question 24; see the questionnaire facsimile.
 Such persons have an ESR code of 4-7 in character 12 of the person record.

       Finally, it should be noted that the unemployment rate represents the
 number of persons unemployed as a percent of the civilian labor force 16
 years old and over. This measure can also be computed for groups within the
 labor force classified by sex, age, marital status, race, etc. The job
 loser, job leaver, reentrant, and new entrant rates are each calculated as a
 percent of the civilian labor force 16 years old and over; the sum of the
 rates for the four groups thus equals the total unemployment rate.

       A person who is unemployed but expects to be called back to a specific
 job. If he/she expects to be called back within 30 days, it is considered a
 temporary layoff; otherwise, it is an indefinite layoff.

 akin for Work. A person who is trying to get work or trying to establish a
 business or profession.

 March Supplement  -ht.  The March supplement weight is on all person records
 and is used to produce "supplement" estimates; that is, income, work
 experience, migration, and family characteristic estimates.

 Marital Status. The marital status classification identifies four major
 categories: single (never married), married, widowed, and divorced. These
 terms refer to the marital status at the time of enumeration.

 The category "married" is further divided into "married, civilian spouse
 present," "married, Armed Force spouse present," "married, spouse absent,"
 "married, Armed Force spouse absent," and "separated." A person is classified
 as "married, spouse present" if the husband or wife is reported a though he
 or she may be temporarily absent on business or on vacation, visit of the
 enumeration.  Persons reported as "separated" included those with legal
 seperations, those living apart with intentions of obtaining a divorce, and
 other persons permanently or temporarily estranged from their spouses
 because of marital discord.

 For the purpose of this file, the group "other marital status" includes
 "widowed and divorced," "separated," and "other married, spouse absent."

 Medicare. The Medicare Program is designed to provide medical care for the
 aged and disabled. The Basic Hospital Insurance Plan (Part A) is designed to
 provide basic protection against hospital costs and related post-hospital
 services.  This plan also covers many persons under 65 years old who railroad
 retirement benefits based on long-term disability.  Part A is financed
 jointly by employers and employees through Social Security payroll
 deductions. Qualified persons 65 years old and over who are not
 otherwise eligible for Part A benefits may pay premiums directly to obtain
 this coverage. The Medical Insurance Plan (Part B) is a voluntary plan which
 builds upon the hospital Insurance protection provided by the basic plan.
 It provides insurance protection covering physicians' and surgeons' services
 and a variety of medical and other health services received either in
 hospitals or on an ambulatory basis. It is financed through monthly premium
 payments by each enrollee, and subsidized by Federal general revenue funds.
 The Medicare question on the March 1987 CPS attempted to identify all persons
 15 years old and over who were "covered" by Medicare at any time during 1986.
 The term "covered" means enrolled in the Medicare Program.  In order to be
 counted, the person dad not necessarily have to receive medical care paid for
 by Medicare.

 Medicaid. The Medicaid Program is designed to provide medical assistance to
 needy families with dependent children, and to aged, blind, or permanently
 and totally disabled individuals whose incomes and resources are insufficient
 to meet the costs of necessary medical services. The program is administered
 by State agencies through grants from the Health Care Financing
 Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services. Funding
 for medical assistance payments consists of a combination of Federal, State,
 and in some cases, local funds.

 Medicaid is a categorical program with complex eligibility rules which vary
 from State to State. There are two basic groups of eligible individuals:
 the categorically eligible and the medically needy. The major categorically
 eligible groups are all Aid to families with Dependent Children (AFDC)
 recipients and most Supplemental Security Income (551) recipient5. Other
 categorically eligible groups are (1) those who meet basic State cash
 assistance eligibility rules~aged, blind, disabled, needy single parents
 with children, and, in some States, needy unemployed parents with children,
 but who are not currently receiving money payments; and (2) needy persons
 who meet categorical eligibility Standards but are Institutionalized for
 medical reasons (e.g., low-income elderly persons in nursing homes). However,
 such institutionalized persons are not included in the CPS universe and,
 therefore, are not reflected in these statistics.

 In roughly one-half of the States, coverage is extended to the medically
 needy--persons meeting categorical age, sex, or disability criteria, whose
 money incomes and assets exceed eligibility levels for cash assistance but
 are not sufficient to meet the cost of medical care. In such States,
 qualifying income and asset levels are usually above those set for cash
 assistance. Families with large medical expenses relative to their incomes
 and assets may also meet medically needy eligibility Standards in these
 States.

 The Medicaid question on the March 1987 CPS attempted to identify all persons
 who were "covered" by Medicaid at     time during 1986. The term "covered"
 means enrolled in the Medicaid program, i.e., had a Medicaid medical
 assistance card, or incurred medical bills which were paid for by Medicaid.
 In order to be counted, the person ad not have to receive medical care paid
 for by Medicaid.

 After data collection and creation of an initial microdata file, further
 refinements were made to assign Medicaid coverage to children. In this
 procedure all children under 21 years old in families were assumed to be
 covered by Medicaid if either the householder or spouse reported being
 covered by Medicaid (this procedure was required mainly because the
 Medicaid coverage question was asked only for persons 15 years old and over).
 All adult AFDC recipients and their children, and 551 recipients living in
 States which legally require Medicaid coverage of all 551 recipients, were
 also assigned coverage.

 Mobility Status. The population of the United States, 15 years old and over,
 is classified according to mobility status on the basis of a comparison
 between the place of residence of each individual at the time of the March
 1987 CP5 and the place of residence in March 1986. The information on
 mobility status is obtained from the responses to a series of inquiries.  The
 first of three inquiries is: "Was...living in this house 1 year ago...?" If
 the answer was "No," the enumerator asked, "Where did...live on March 1,
 1986?" In classification, three main categories distinguish nonmovers,
 movers, and persons abroad.

 Nonmovers are all persons who are living in the same house at the end of the
 period as at the beginning of the period. Movers are all persons who are
 living in a different house at the end of the period than at the beginning
 of the period.  Movers from abroad include all persons, either citizens or
 aliens, whose place of residence is  outside the United States at the
 beginning of the period, that is, in an outlying area under the jurisdiction
 of the United States or in a foreign country.

 Month-In-Sample. The term is defined as the number of times a unit is
 interviewed.  Each unit is interviewed eight times during the life of the
 sample.

 Never Worked. A person who has never held a full-time civilian job lasting
 two consecutive weeks or more.

 Nonfamilv Householder. A nonfamily householder (formerly called a primary
 individual) is a person maintaining a household while living alone or with
 nonrelatives only.

 Nonfarm Self-emplovment Net Income.  The term is defined as net money income
 (gross receipts minus expenses) from an individual's own business,
 professional enterprise, or partnership. Gross receipts include the value
 of all goods sold and services rendered. Expenses include costs of goods
 purchased, rent, heat, light, power, depreciation charges, wages and salaries
 paid, business taxes (not personal income taxes), etc.  In general, inventory
 changes are considered in determining net income; replies based on income tax
 returns or other official records do reflect inventory changes; however, when
 values of inventory changes are not reported, net income figures exclusive of
 inventory changes are accepted. The value of saleable merchandise consumed
 by the proprietors of retail stores is not included as part of net income.

 Nonworker. A person who does not do any work in the calendar year preceding
 the survey.

 Nonrelative of Householder With No Own Relatives in Household. A nonrelative
 of the householder who has no relative(s) of his own in the household. This
 category includes such nonrelatives as a foster child, a ward, a lodger, a
 servant, or a hired hand, who has no relatives of his own living with him in
 the household.

 Nonrelative of Householder With Own Relatives (lncludina use in Household.
 Any household member who is not related to the householder but has relatives
 of his own in the household; for example, a lodger, his spouse, and their
 son.

 Other Relative of Householder.  Any relative of the householder other than
 his spouse or child; for example, father, mother, grandson, daughter-in-law,
 etc.

 Own Child. A child related by birth, marriage, or adoption to the family
 householder.

 Part-Time, Economic Reasons. The item includes slack work, material
 shortages, repairs to plant or equipment, start or termination of job during
 the week, and inability to find full-time work. (See also Full-Time Worker.)

 Part-Time Other Reasons.  The item includes labor dispute, bad weather, own
 illness, vacation, demands of home housework, school, no desire for full-time
 work, and full-time worker only during peak season.

 Part-Time Work.  Persons who work between 1 and 34 hours are designated as
 working "part-time" in the current job held during the reference week. For
 the March supplement, a person is classified as having worked part-time
 during the preceding calendar year if he worked less than 35 hours per week
 in a majority of the weeks in which he worked during the year.  Conversely,
 he is classified as having worked full-time if he worked 35 hours or more
 per week during a majority of the weeks in which he worked.

 Part-Year Work. Part-year work is classified as less than 50 weeks' work.

 Pension Plan. The pension plan question on the March 1987 CPS attempted to
 identify if pension plan coverage was available through an employer or union
 and if the employee was included. This information was collected for civilian
 persons 15 years old and over who worked during 1986.

 Population Coverage.  Population coverage includes the civilian population
 of the United States plus approximately 820,000 members of the Armed Forces
 in the United States living off post or with their families on post but
 excludes all other members of the Armed Forces. This file excludes inmates
 of institutions. The labor force and work experience data are not collected
 for Armed Forces members.

 Poverty. In this file, families and unrelated individuals are classified as
 being above or below the poverty' level using a poverty index adopted
 by a Federal Interagency Committee in 1969 and slightly modified in 1981.

 The modified index provides a range of income cutoffs or "poverty thresholds"
 adjusted to take into account family size, number of children, and age of the
 family householder or unrelated individual; prior to 1981, adjustments were
 also made on the basis of farm-nonfarm residence and sex of the householder.
 The impact of these revisions on the poverty estimates is minimal at the
 national level. The poverty cutoffs are updated every year to reflect
 changes in the Consumer Price Index. The average poverty threshold for a
 family of four was $10,989 in 1985. For a detailed explanation of the
 poverty definition, see Current Population arts, Series P-60, No. 154 "Money
 Income and Poverty Status of Persons in the United States: 1985."

 Public Assistance. (See Income.)

 Public or Other Subsidized Housing.  Participation in public housing is
 determined by two factors:  program eligibility and the availability
 of housing.  Income standards for initial and continuing occupancy vary by
 local housing authority, although the limits are constrained by Federal
 guidelines.  Rental charges, which, in turn, define net benefits, are set
 by a Federal statute not to exceed 30 percent of net monthly money income.
 A recipient unit can either be a family of two or more related persons or an
 individual who is handicapped, elderly, or displaced by urban renewal or
 natural disaster.

 There are some programs through which housing assistance is provided to
 low-income families and Individuals living in public or privately owned
 dwellings. Two of the more common types of programs in which Federal,
 State, and local funds are used to subsidize private sector housing are rent
 supplement and interest reduction plans. Under a rent supplement plan the
 difference between the "fair market" rent and the rent charged to the tenant
 is paid to the owner by a government agency.  Under an interest reduction
 program the amount of interest paid on the mortgage by the owner Is reduced
 so that subsequent savings can be passed along to low income tenants in the
 form of lower rent charges.

 There were two questions dealing with public and low cost housing on the
 March 1987 CPS supplement questionnaire. The first question identifies
 residence in a housing unit owned by a public agency. The second question
 identifies beneficiaries who were not living in public housing projects, but
 who were paying lower rent due to a government subsidy. These questions
 differ from other questions covering noncash benefits in that they establish
 current recipiency status in March 1987 rather than recipiency status during
 1986.

 Race. The population is divided into three groups on the basis of race:
 White, Black, and Other races. The last category includes Indians,
 Japanese, Chinese, and any other race except White and Black.  In most of the
 published tables, "Other Races" are shown in total population.

 Receipts Not Counter as Income. Receipts from the following sources are not
 included as income: (1) money received from the sale of property, such as
 stocks, bonds, a house, or a car (unless the person was engaged in the
 business of selling such property, in which case the net proceeds would be
 counted as income from self-employment); (2) withdrawals of bank deposits;
 (3) money borrowed; (4) tax refunds; (5) gifts; and (6) lump-sum inheritances
 or insurance payments.

 Reentrants. Persons who previously worked at a full-time job lasting two
 weeks or longer but who are out of the labor force prior to beginning to look
 for work.

 Related Children. Related children in a family include own children and all
 other children in the household who are related to the householder by birth,
 marriage, or adoption. For each type of family unit identified in the CPS,
 the count of own children under 18 years old Is limited to single (never
 married) children; however, "own children under 25" and "own children
 of any age," include all children regardless of marital status. The totals
 include never-married children living away from home in college dormitories.

 Related Subfamily. A related subfamily is a married couple with or without
 children, or one parent with one or more own single (never married) children
 under 18 years old, living in a household and related to, but not
 including, the householder or spouse. The most common example of a related
 subfamily is a young married couple sharing the home of the husband's or
 wife's parents. The number of related subfamilies is not included
 in the number of families.

 School. A person who spent most of his time during the survey week attending
 any kind of public or private school, including trade or vocational schools
 in which students receive no compensation in money or kind.

 School Lunches. The National School Lunch Program is designed to assist
 States in providing a school lunch for all children at moderate cost.  The
 National School Lunch Act of 1946 was further amended in 1970 to provide free
 and reduced.price school lunches for children of needy families. The program
 is administered by the Food and Nutrition Service of the U.S. Department of
 Agriculture (USDA) through State educational agencies or through regional
 USDA nutrition services for nonprofit private schools. The program is funded
 by a combination of Federal funds and matching State funds.

 All students eating lunches prepared at participating schools pay less than
 the total cost of the lunches. Some students pay the "full established" price
 for lunch (which itself is subsidized) while others pay a "reduced" price
 for lunch, and still others receive a "free" lunch. Program regulations
 require students receiving free lunches to live in households with incomes
 below 125 percent of the official poverty level.  Those students receiving a
 reduced.price school lunch (10 to 20 cents per meal) live in households with
 incomes between 125 percent and 195 percent of the official poverty level.
 The data in this file, however, do not distinguish between recipiency of
 free and reduced-price school lunches.

 The questions on the March 1987 CPS provide a very limited amount of data
 for the school lunch program. Questions concerning the school lunch program
 were designed to identify the number of members 5 to 18 years old in
 households who "usually' ate a hot lunch. This defined the universe of
 household members usually receiving this noncash benefit. This was followed
 by a question to identify the number of members receiving free or reduced
 price lunches.

 Secondary Individual. A secondary individual Is a person in a household or
 group quarters such as a guest, roomer, boarder, or resident employee
 (excluding nonfamily households and inmates of institutions) who is not
 related to any other person in the household or group quarters.

 Self-Employed. Self-employed persons are those who work for profit or fees
 in their own business, profession or trade, or operate a farm.

 Spanish Origin. Persons of Spanish origin in this file are determined on the
 basis of a question that asked for self-identification of the person's origin
 or descent. Respondent5 are asked to select their origin (or the origin of
 some other household member) from a "flash card" listing ethnic origins.
 Persons of Spanish origin, in particular, are those who indicated that their
 origin was Mexican.American, Chicano, Mexican, Mexicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban,
 Central or South American, or other Spanish.

 Stretches of Unemployment. A continuous stretch is one that is not
 interrupted by the person getting a job or leaving the labor market to go to
 school, to keep house, etc. A period of two weeks or more during which a
 person is employed or ceased looking for work is considered to break the
 continuity of the period of seeking work.

 Total Money Income. The term is defined as the arithmetic sum of money wages
 and salaries, net income from self-employment, and income other than
 earnings. The total income of a household is the arithmetic sum of the
 amounts received by all income recipients in the household.

 Unable to Work. A person is classified as unable to work because of long-term
 physical or mental illness, lasting six months or longer.

 Unemployed. (See Labor Force.)

 Unemplovment Comnensation. (See Income.)

 Unpaid Family Workers. Unpaid family workers are persons working without pay
 for 15 hours a week or more on a farm or in a business operated by a member
 of the household to whom they are related by birth or marriage.

 Unrelated Individuals. Unrelated individuals are persons of any age (other
 than inmates of institutions) who are not living with any relatives. An
 unrelated individual may be (1) a nonfamily householder living alone or with
 nonrelatives only, (2) a roomer, boarder, or resident employee with no
 relatives in the household, or (3) a group quarters member who has no
 relatives living with him/her. Thus, a widow who occupies her house alone or
 with one or more other persons not related to her, a roomer not related to
 anyone else in the housing unit, a maid living as a member of her employer's
 household but with no relatives in the household, and a resident staff
 member in a hospital living apart from any relatives are all examples of
 unrelated individuals.

 Unrelated Subfamily.  An unrelated subfamily is a family that does not
 include among its members the householder and relatives of the householder.
 Members of unrelated subfamilies may include persons such as guests, roomers,
 boarders, or resident employees and their relatives living in a household.
 The number of unrelated subfamily members is included in the number of
 household members but is not included in the count of family members.

 Persons living with relatives in group quarters were formerly considered as
 members of families. However, the number of such unrelated subfamilies became
 so small (37,000 in 1967) that beginning with the data for 1968 (and
 beginning with the census data for 1960) the Bureau of the Census includes
 persons in these unrelated subfamilies in the count of secondary individuals.
 Veteran Status. If a male served at any time during the four major wars of
 this century, the code for the most recent wartime service is entered. The
 following codes are used:

       0       Females, children under 15
       1       Vietnam era
       2       Korean
       3       WWl
       4       WWll
       5       Other Service
       6       Nonveteran

 Wage and Salary Workers. Wage and salary workers receive wages, salary,
 commission, tips, or pay in kind from a private employer or from a
 governmental unit. Also included are persons who are self.employed in an
 incorporated business. (See income.)

 Weeks Worked in the Income Year. Persons are classified according to the
 number of different weeks, during the preceding calendar year, in which they
 did any civilian work for pay or profit (including paid vacations and
 sick leave) or worked without pay on a family.operated farm or business.

 Workers. (See Labor Force--Employed.)

 Work Experience.  Includes those persons who during the preceding calendar
 year did any work for pay or profit or worked without pay on a family-
 operated farm or business at any time during the year, on a part-time or
 full-time basis.

 Year-Round Full.Time Worker. A year-round full-time worker is one who usually
 worked 35 hours or more per week for 50 weeks or more during the preceding
 calendar year.

 Years of School Completed. Data on years of school completed are derived
 from the combination of answers to questions concerning the highest grade of
 school attended by the person and whether or not that grade is finished.
 Educational attainment applies only to progress in "regular" school.  Such
 schools include graded public, private, and parochial elementary and high
 schools (both junior and senior high), colleges, universities, and
 professional schools, whether day schools or night schools.  Thus, regular
 schooling is that which may advance a person toward an elementary school
 certificate or high school diploma, or a college, university, or professional
 school degree. Schooling in other than regular schools is counted only if the
 credits obtained are regarded as transferable to a school in the regular
 school system.

APPENDIX D
                          Matching of March CPS Files


 There are two basic limitations in linking the March CPS files across years.
 First, only fifty percent of the sample is included in two consecutrve
 years. Second, the residents within the eligible housing units may have or
 appeared as noninterview records in one or both years. The result is than
 the upper limrt of fffl percent. The basic procedures and variables files
 are outlined below.

 1.Sample Selection.

 The first step in matching year t with year t+ 1 is to select from year t
 those housing units with a "month in sample" value of 1 through 4, and
 from year t+ 1 those units with a "month in sample" value of 5 through 8.
 This will identify the sample subset eligible for matching. Within this
 subset, housing unit in year t, month 1 will match only with unrts in year
 t+ 1, month 5, etc.

 2.Matchina Housing Units.

 Using one or more variables, it is possible to uniquely identify each
 housing unit in each sample rotation. However, because of changes in CPS
 procedures, the available information for matching housing units is always
 identical. Below are the variables available for matching March CPS files.

 Years:     1968-1971
 Variables: Random Cluster Code (F6-10) and Serial Number (Fl 1-14)

 Years:    1971-1972
           Changes in CPS clustering procedures and the accompanying change
           of household identification numbers prevent matching 1971 and
           1972 March CPS files.

 Years:     1972-1973
            The 1972 file uses 1960 random cluster codes while the 1973 file
            uses 1970 random cluster codes, thus precluding the matching of
            records.

 Years:     1973-1975
 Variables: Random Cluster Code (F7-1 1). Segment Number (Fl 2-16), and
            Serial Number (F21 7-218).

 Years:     1975-1976
 Variables: 1975: Random Cluster Code (F7-1 1) Segment Number (Fl 2-1 6), and
            Serial Number (F21 7-218)
            1976: Random Cluster Code (H35-39), Segment Number (H40-43), and
            Serial Number (H44A5).

 Years:     1976-1977
            Matching is not possible because variables required for matching
            are in a different format each year.

 Years:     1977-1985
 Variable:  Household Identification Number (HI8-29).

 Years:     1985-1986
            Matching is not possible because the 1986 file is based entirely
            on the 1980 census design sample.

 Years:     1986 Forward
 Variable:  Household Identification Number (HI8-29)

 3.Matchinq Households. Families. and Persons

  Although the information presented above allows matching of housing units
 across years, it is possible that the residents of the housing unit have
 changed. Consequently, it is necessary to perform additional matches to
 insure resident comparability. The specific variables used to match residents
 according to the needs of the project but it is more efficient to arrange
 the matching in a hierarchical sequence.  For example, matching on sex and
 race should precede matching on age or household relationship. The should
 carefully work through the possible changes in household structure
 inappropriate rejection of a household.  For example, a husband-wife family
 in year t that experienced a divorce and became a female headed household
 in year t+ 1 would fail the test for matching sex of head. Clearly, the
 more criteria used in matching records will result in greater accuracy, but
 will also increase the expense and result in fewer matches.


APPENDIX E

Specific Metropolitan Identifiers

 The specific metropolitan identifiers on this file are based on the Office
 of Management and Budget's June 30, 1984 definitions and are ranked
 according to Census Bureau population estimates for July 1, 1983.
 Identification of CMSA's is based solely on the CMSA/MSA rank code (See List
 1).  MSA's can be identified by using either the CMSA/MSA rank code (List 1)
 or the TIPS MSA/PMSA code (List 4). PMSA's can be identified by either the
 TIPS MSA/PMSA code (List 4) or a combination of the CMSA/MSA rank codes and
 the PMSA rank code (List 2).  Identification of individual central cities is
 based on a combination of codes (See List 3). Individual central cities are
 identified by the appropriate central city code and the TIPS MSA/PMSA code
 or the appropriate central city code, the CMSA/MSA rank code, and, if
 necessary, the PMSA rank code.  Some examples of the proper coding of
 specific metropolitan areas are given below,

 NOTES:  (1) Do not attempt to tally CMSA totals by summing identified PMSA's.
 The specific PMSA identification for some PMSA's is suppressed while the
 specific CMSA for those areas is available.  The New Hampshire portion of
 the Boston CMSA is an example of this.  While specific identification of
 Nashua and the Lawrence-Haverill and Lowell portions is suppressed, all
 areas are coded as being in the Boston CMSA.

         (2) Many of the smaller metropolitan areas in sample do not contain
 central city/balance breakdowns and hence, are coded "not identifiable" in
 the central city metropolitan statistical area residence status code
 (CCCSMSA).  It is recommended that this code in conjunction with the
 modified metropolitan statistical area residence status code (MSTSMSAR) be
 used for tallying metropolitan residence status for national and other
 grouped data.

Topcoding of Usual Hourly Earnings

 This variable will be topcoded based on an individual's usual hours worked
 variable, if the individual's edited usual weekly earnings variable is $999.
 The topcode is computed such that the product of usual hours times usual
 hourly earnings does not exceed an annualized wage of $1OO,OOO ($1923,07 per
 week). Below is a list of the appropriate topcodes.

    Hours            Topcode
                                              5O             $38.46
         1            None                    51             $37.7O
