1989 Current Population Survey, September Supplement

SPECIAL NOTE

OMB Supporting Statement

                        OMB SUPPORTING STATEMENT

 This statement is submitted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute
 (NHLBI), in support of a Cardiovascular Risk Factor Supplement to be added to
 the Current Population Survey (CPS).  This Supplement will collect data on
 the three major risk factors for coronary heart disease -- high blood
 cholesterol, high blood pressure and cigarette smoking.  These data will be
 used in planning and evaluation of the National Cholesterol Education Program
 (NCEP), National High Blood Pressure Education Program (NHBPEP), and the
 NHLBI Smoking Education Program (SEP).

 A.  Justification

  1.  The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) under the
 Department of Health and Human Services is requesting that a Cardiovascular
 Disease Risk Factor Supplement be added to the September 1989 and 1990
 Current Population Survey.

      The Current Population Survey is a survey conducted by the Census Bureau
 of the civilian noninstitutionalized population primarily for labor force
 participation data.  The CPS has a panel design in which one quarter of the
 individuals interviewed in September 1989 will be reinterviewed in September
 1990.  Interviews are conducted in person.

      The proposed questions comprise the Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factor
 Supplement (Attachment A).  This supplement will collect data on the
 prevalence of cigarette smoking and awareness and treatment of the two other
 major cardiovascular disease risk factors (high blood cholesterol and high
 blood pressure).

      Data on the incidence of smoking was last collected on the CPS in
 September 1985, and provided estimates on smoking prevalence among various
 population groups.  This supplement was sponsored by and has been published
 by the Office on Smoking and Health (now part of the Centers for Disease
 Control).  The 1985 data showed regional and state differences in the
 prevalence of cigarette smoking and has led to estimates of the smoking
 related mortality experience of the states.  These estimates were published
 in the 1989 Report of the Surgeon General as well as in a number of journal
 articles.

      The proposed supplement will be the first collection on the CPS of
 detailed information regarding the other risk factors of coronary heart
 disease.  The percent of the population who are aware of their high blood
 pressure and high blood cholesterol will be estimated as well as the percent
 of persons who are aware of their high blood pressure or high blood
 cholesterol who are taking steps such as taking prescribed medicine,
 exercising, losing weight, and making other dietary modifications to control
 these conditions.

      This collection is authorized under 42 of the United States Code 285b-2
 and 3, Sections 420 and 421 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by
 the Health Research Extension Act (Attachment B).  This requires the NHLBI to
 collect and disseminate information on the prevention and treatment of lung
 and cardiovascular disease to the public and various agencies, and other
 groups.

  2.  These data will support the three risk factor education programs
 administered by the Office of Prevention, Education, and Control of the
 National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.  They are the National Cholesterol
 Education Program (NCEP), the National High Blood Pressure Education Program
 (NHBPEP), and the NHLBI Smoking Education Program (SEP).  The NHLBI is the
 lead agency responsible for educating the public and health professionals on
 cholesterol and high blood pressure.

      The goal of the National Cholesterol Education Program is to reduce the
 prevalence of elevated blood cholesterol in the United States, and thereby
 contribute to reducing coronary heart disease mortality.  The objectives of
 this National program are to increase the proportion of Americans who have
 their blood cholesterol measured, to increase the proportion of Americans who
 know their blood cholesterol level, to encourage people identified as having
 high blood cholesterol to seek professional advice, and to increase the
 proportion of people with high blood cholesterol who adhere to their
 cholesterol lowering regimen of diet, weight control, exercise, and taking
 prescribed medications.

      The data collected in this Supplement will allow the NCEP to evaluate
 the progress toward reaching these goals by estimating the proportion of the
 population that is aware of their high blood cholesterol and that reports
 being on treatment for it.  The CPS will allow the following estimates to be
 obtained according to various demographic variables collected in the CPS:

           Number and percent of the population who have had their blood
                cholesterol measured.
           Number and percent of the population who were told their
                cholesterol level.
           Number and percent of the population who were told that their
                cholesterol level was high.
           Number and percent of the population who are being treated for
                high blood cholesterol (those who were told by a doctor or
                other health professional to take prescribed medicine,
                control weight, exercise, eat fewer high fat foods, or eat
                fewer high cholesterol foods).
      All of these can be examined by age, race, sex, occupation, income,
 education, and State of residence, making this a unique and valuable data
 base.

      Through radio, television, and print materials, the NCEP works to
 increase the general public's awareness about having their blood cholesterol
 level checked, knowing what their blood cholesterol level is, and taking
 steps to lower elevated levels.  The program plans to reach out to special
 audiences such as minority groups.  In order to better plan for and evaluate
 the NCEP, the NHLBI has developed a long-range evaluation plan which includes
 monitoring the public knowledge attitudes and general reported behavior
 related to cholesterol.

      The 1990 CPS will collect follow-up data on one quarter of those
 individuals interviewed in 1989 and this will allow the NCEP to determine the
 changes in the awareness and reported treatment rates of high blood
 cholesterol.  The following estimates will be reported:
           Number and percent of the population who in 1989 had never had
                their cholesterol measured but who reported that they had
                their cholesterol measured in 1990.
           Number and percent of the population who in 1989 had never been
                told their cholesterol level but who reported that they were
                told their level in 1990.
           Number and percent of the population who were newly diagnosed
                with high blood cholesterol between September 1989 and 1990.
           Number and percent of the population who were newly treated for
                high blood cholesterol between September 1989 and 1990.

      The goal of the National High Blood Pressure Education Program is to
 reduce death and disability related to high blood pressure through a program
 of public and professional education.  The objectives of the education
 activities include maintaining the steady increase in the awareness,
 treatment, and control rates among hypertensives, thereby increasing the
 number of hypertensives who stay on therapy.

      The data collected in this supplement will allow the NHBPEP to evaluate
 the progress made toward meeting these objectives by enabling the NHBPEP to
 make the following estimates:
           Number and percent of the population who have had their
                blood pressure measured and the length of time since it was
                last measured.
           Number and percent of the population who have been told by a
                doctor or other health professional that they have
                hypertension or high blood pressure.
           Number and percent of the population who were told they have high
                blood pressure and are being treated for their high blood
                pressure.
           Number and percent of hypertensives who are staying on the
                treatment to control their blood pressure.

      Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys indicate
 that the proportion of hypertensives who are aware of their condition is
 substantial, about 75 percent; however, the proportion of hypertensives who
 are controlling their blood pressure remains relatively low.  Therefore, the
 NHBPEP message is to encourage hypertensives to stay on their treatment and
 control their high blood pressure.  The NHBPEP reaches out to special
 audiences such as minority groups and encourages work sites to implement and
 expand their high blood pressure control programs.

      In order to indicate the changes in hypertensives' awareness and
 treatment rates, the 1990 CPS follow-up (one quarter of those interviewed in
 1989) will allow the following estimates to be made:
           Number and percent of the population who are newly diagnosed
                by a physician or other health professional as having
                high blood pressure.
           Number and percent of the population who have high blood pressure
                and are under treatment by a physician.
           Number and percent of the population who are diagnosed with high
                blood pressure, are advised by a physician who are
                following this treatment.

      While the Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) has the lead role for
 educating the public on the health effects of cigarette smoking; NHLBI's
 Smoking Education Program works with OSH, and consulted with OSH on this
 supplement.  The NHLBI is also a member of the Interagency Committee on
 Smoking and Health, a National Advisory committee established to coordinate
 smoking-related activities through a number of organizations in the campaign
 against tobacco use.

      The overall goal of the NHLBI SEP is to reduced tobacco-related
 cardiovascular and pulmonary disease morbidity and mortality through
 educational efforts that target key health professionals and health delivery
 systems.  The major objectives of the SEP are to strengthen the role that
 work sites play in preventing and controlling cardiovascular and pulmonary
 disease in their employees; and to increase the number and effectiveness of
 state and community-based education programs on smoking cessation.  Data in
 support of a continued emphasis on smoking prevention and health promotion
 related to smoking are necessary in order to emphasize the magnitude of the
 problem to state and community health officials, employers, and other public
 health program planners.

      The CPS will allow the following estimates to be obtained according to
 various demographic variables collected in the CPS (these include age, race,
 sex, occupation, income, education, and State of residence):
           Number and percent of the population who smoke cigarettes.
           Number and percent of the population according to the number of
                cigarettes smoked per day.
           Number and percent of the population who start smoking each year
                according to age.
           Number and percent of the population who have quit smoking
                cigarettes.

      The 1990 follow-up data will allow the NHLBI SEP to estimate changes in
 the prevalence of cigarette smoking according to these geographic and
 demographic variables.

      These data will enable the relevant national programs to identify and
 focus on target groups whose economic, social, and cultural backgrounds make
 them more susceptible to these cardiovascular diseases due to a greater
 prevalence of risk factors.  The establishment of more effective programs in
 conjunction with other federal, state, local, and public health agencies
 involved in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of heart and lung
 disease will be enhanced by the use of the information collected.

  3.  The supplemental questions are designed to obtain the required
 information with minimum respondent burden.  The proposed questions are the
 result of consultations between the Census Bureau and NHLBI.  They represent
 the maximum amount of information as requested by the sponsors that the
 Census Bureau can collect within the constraints of the CPS and limitations
 of respondent burden.

  4.  The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), which is sponsored by the
 National Center for Health Statistics and collected yearly by the Census
 Bureau, collects data on cardiovascular risk factors.  (It will not be
 collecting data on high blood pressure or cholesterol in 1989.)  The CPS
 sample size is much larger and allows for the collection of a comprehensive
 set of data featuring demographic and labor force differences among groups at
 the subnational level.  The NHIS sample size restricts analysis of data to
 the national level whereas the CPS provides State reliable data required by
 the NHLBI.  In addition, the Health Interview Survey does not conduct follow-
 up interviews which the panel design of the CPS does.

      The CPS will provide reliable race, sex, income, education, and
 occupation estimates.  Data will be available for specific minority groups,
 and by occupation and employment status.  No other survey is able to provide
 the reliability for minority populations according to a geographic area, as
 needed.  The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute has an Ad Hoc
 Committee on Cardiovascular Pulmonary Risk Factors in Minority Populations
 concerned with identifying the cardiovascular disease risk factor reduction a
 large enough sample to support the types of analyses required by the NHLBI.

      Another advantage to the CPS is that the labor force data will provide
 an even broader description of the social and economic characteristics of
 target groups for the prevention and treatment of heart disease by way of
 work site initiatives of NHLBI.  For example, industry and occupation data
 used in conjunction with the supplement items will help target different
 employee groups who are at greater risk of cardiovascular disease.

      There is wide geographic variation in the mortality rates for
 cardiovascular disease, presumably due to the variation in the prevalence of
 these risk factors.  For instance, the mortality rate from strokes in the
 southeastern part of the United States is considerably highly than elsewhere
 in the country.  This difference in the mortality rates for stroke is evident
 in both urban and rural areas and for both blacks and whites.  Accordingly,
 individual states could and should come to different conclusions regarding
 which risk factors should be given the highest priority for intervention
 efforts.  National estimates alone are not adequate for setting priorities in
 State jurisdictions.

      State specific data are essential in allowing these programming
 priorities to be made and to assist NHLBI in planning and implementing our
 targeted state-based CVD risk reduction programs, and workshops.  Largely due
 to the NHLBI sponsored community demonstration programs, interest by the
 states in developing and implementing community-based risk reduction is
 growing considerably.  In fact, it is the State Health Departments who are
 taking the lead role in cholesterol screening as they have for blood pressure
 screening in the past.  They are also moving aggressively in the Multiple
 Risk factor education arena and have urged NHLBI to provide them relevant
 state-specific data on the extent of these problems and targets for
 intervention to help them plan for these programs.

      Finally, the CPS provides a longitudinal capability which is not
 otherwise available.  One objective of this survey is to measure the
 prevalence of the risk factors, which will be accomplished by the 1989
 Supplement.  In addition, the percent of persons who become aware of their
 high blood cholesterol or high blood pressure over the course of one year
 will be determined by the 1990 Supplement.  The 1990 Supplement will allow
 estimates of the incident cases of persons who are diagnosed with high blood
 pressure and high blood cholesterol over the one year period, as well as the
 percent of persons who are aware of their high blood pressure or high blood
 cholesterol who take steps to control this condition.  The percent of persons
 who report that they do not smoke in 1989 and smoke in 1990 as well as the
 percent of persons who smoke in 1989 and have quit in 1990 will also be
 estimated.  Resulting measures of change in smoking status will allow the
 NHLBI to determine trends across various demographic groups.

      These estimates resulting from the 1989-1990 Supplement will allow NHLBI
 to measure the incident cases of increased awareness and treatment of high
 blood pressure and high blood cholesterol over the course of one year but not
 to attribute that change to any one program or initiative.  These data are
 not available anywhere else; the CPS is the only survey which has this panel
 design.  There is no reason to believe that these few straight forward
 questions which are asked in 1989 will sensitize the respondents to the
 topics in 1990, particularly in today's environment when the news and lay
 press is full of health educational messages on these topics.

      The CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) collects data
 in a number of participating states.  It is not a national probability survey
 and does not have all the states participating.  It does not have a panel
 design which will allow estimates of incident cases.  It will not allow the
 occupational or labor force estimates to be made in order to support NHLBI's
 Work Site Health Education Programs.  The CDC survey will not allow reliable
 state and minority specific estimates to be made in support of the NHLBI Ad
 Hoc Minority Committee initiatives.

      The Office on Smoking and Health, now part of the CDC, periodically
 collects data on attitudes, knowledge, and behaviors related to cigarette
 smoking and other tobacco use on the Adult Use of Tobacco Survey.  This
 survey was last conducted in 1986.  This entire survey is dedicated to the
 prevalence of cigarette smoking but it does not provide the estimates of the
 prevalence of the other cardiovascular disease risk factors and because of
 the limited sample size it restricts the analysis to the national level.

      The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) periodically collect data on
 their Health and Diet Survey on the public's knowledge of cholesterol and
 high blood pressure but again this survey does not provide the level of
 reliability required by the NHLBI for their National programs as previously
 described.

  5.  The proposed September CPS supplement will be the only source of data as
 described in 2 above that produces a reliable and detailed data set on a
 national and state level as required by NHLBI, specifically data by race,
 ethnicity, employment status, and occupation.

  6.  The supplemental questions are asked only of individuals.
  7.  This is a request to collect cardiovascular disease risk factor data in
 September 1989 from households in the full CPS sample and September 1990 from
 households in the overlap sample.  A 2-year collection is requested as it
 will allow comparisons to be made and thus prove to be more valuable in
 evaluating HHS initiatives on cholesterol, high blood pressure and smoking.

  8.  The collection of these data will be consistent with the guidelines in 5
 CFR 1320.6.

  9.  The following persons have been consulted concerning the design of the
 survey:

                                               (301) 496-1051

 10.  The Census Bureau will collect the supplement data in compliance with
 the Privacy Act of 1974 and OMB Circular A-108.  New or returning households
 receive an advance letter approximately 1 week before the start of the
 initial CPS interview (see Attachment C).  The letter contains the
 information required by the Privacy Act of 1974, and informs the respondent
 of the voluntary nature of the survey.  Interviewers must ask if the
 respondent received the letter, and if not, provide a copy and allow the
 respondent sufficient time to read the contents.  Also, interviewers provide
 to households when necessary the brochure entitled "How the Census Bureau
 Keeps Your Information Strictly Confidential" which further states the
 confidentiality assurances associates with this data collection effort and
 the Census Bureau's past performance in assuring confidentiality (see
 Attachment D.)

      All information given to Census Bureau employees is kept strictly
 confidential as mandated by Title 13, United States Code, Section 9
 (Attachment E).

 11.  The supplement does not include any questions of a sensitive nature.

 12.  The expected cost to the Government of the CPS program to which this
 form relates will be $27 million in fiscal year 1989.  Bearing the costs are
 the Bureau of the Census, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and other
 Government agencies, if involved.  The estimated cost of the Cardiovascular
 Risk Factor Supplement is $200,000 in fiscal year 1989 and $200,000 in fiscal
 year 1990 all borne by the Department of Health and Human Services.

 13.  We estimate that an average of 2 minutes will be required for each of
 the households (approximately 56,000) containing persons eligible for the
 supplement.  Each person in the household, 15 years of age and older, will be
 interviewed (approximately 115,000 in 1989 and 28,000 in 1990).  An estimated
 total of 1,898 hours will be required of the respondents in these households
 in fiscal year 1989 and 466 hours in fiscal year 1990.  The reduction in the
 number of burden hours in fiscal year 1990 is due to a decrease in the number
 of respondents.  The average burden over the two years for 1989 and 1990 is
 1186.

 14.  There is no change in burden hours.

 15.  The Census Bureau will collect the data during the week of September 17-
 23 in 1989 and September 18-24 in 1990.  Summary tabulations will be
 available by November and a data file will be made available by December in
 both the years 1989 and 1990.

      The CPS will allow the following estimates to be obtained according to
 various demographic variables collected in the CPS:

           Number and percent of the population who have had their blood
                cholesterol measured.
           Number and percent of the population who were told their
                cholesterol level.
           Number and percent of the population who were told that their
                cholesterol level was high.
           Number and percent of the population who are being treated for
                high blood cholesterol (those who were told by a doctor or
                other health professional to take prescribed medicine,
                control weight, exercise, eat fewer high fat foods, or eat
                fewer high cholesterol foods).
           Number and percent of the population who have had their
                blood pressure measured and the length of time since it was
                last measured.
           Number and percent of the population who have been told by a
                doctor or other health professional that they have
                hypertension or high blood pressure.
           Number and percent of the population who were told they have high
                blood pressure and are being treated for their high blood
                pressure.
           Number and percent of hypertensives who are staying on the
                treatment to control their blood pressure.
           Number and percent of the population who smoke cigarettes.
           Number and percent of the population according to the number of
                cigarettes smoked per day.

      All of these can be examined by age, race, sex, occupation, income,
 education, and State of residence making this a unique and valuable data
 base.

      After the 1990 CPS Follow-up the following estimates will be reported:

           Number and percent of the population who in 1989 had never had
                their cholesterol measured but who reported that they had
                their cholesterol measured in 1990.
           Number and percent of the population who in 1989 had never been
                told their cholesterol level but who reported that they were
                told their level in 1990.
           Number and percent of the population who were newly diagnosed
                with high blood cholesterol between September 1989 and 1990.
           Number and percent of the population who were newly treated for
                high blood cholesterol between September 1989 and 1990.
           Number and percent of the population who start smoking each year
                according to age.
           Number and percent of the population who have quit smoking
                cigarettes.

 B.  Collections of Information Employing Statistical Methods

 1.  The CPS universe is 89 million households.  A sample of approximately
 71,000 households is selected and approximately 56,000 os those households
 are interviewed.  Each household member age 15 or older will be interviewed.
 Field Representatives will make two attempts to contact the sample person
 before a proxy interview will be accepted.  Based on the September 1985
 supplement, the estimated response rate will be 94 percent.

      Attachment F, Paragraph 1, discusses the CPS sample design selection.

 2.  The Census Bureau will conduct the September supplement in conjunction
 with the September CPS.  Attachment F gives an overview of the CPS sample
 design and weighing methodology.

 3.  Clerical edits, instruction and training for Field representatives, and
 close monitoring of the data maintain high levels of response and data
 accuracy for the CPS.  (Refer to Paragraph 5 of Attachment F for a discussion
 of CPS nonresponse).

 4.  The latest phase in a series of Census methodological and questionnaire
 tests is currently under way on the CPS-1 (for a description, see Paragraph 6
 of Attachment F).

     The questions included in this CVD Risk Factor Supplement will not be
 included in the pretesting of the CPS.  The supplemental questions are
 standard questions designed to estimate the prevalence of these CVD risk
 factors.  They have been used in other surveys for this purpose (see Section
 A.4)

     Microdata; unit of observation is individuals within housing units.

Universe Description

     The universe consists of all persons in the civilian noninstitutional
 population of the United States living in households.  The probability sample
 selected to represent the universe consists of approximately 71,000
 households.

Subject-Matter Description

     Data are provided on labor force activity for the week prior to the
 survey.  Comprehensive data are available on the employment status,
 occupation, and industry of persons 15 years old and over.  Also shown are
 personal characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran
 status, household relationship, educational background, and Spanish origin.

     The Veterans supplement provides estimates on the demographic and labor
 force characteristics of veterans who have a service-connected disability in
 comparison to all other veterans.  The data will also identify Vietnam
 theater veterans-those who actually served in Vietnam, Laos, or Cambodia.
 Estimates of the number of veterans with a service-connected disability along
 with their labor force participation rate, occupation, unemployment rate, and
 use of certain educational and job training programs is also provided.

     The cardiovascular disease risk factor supplement provides estimates on
 the three major risk factors of heart disease:  cigarette smoking, high blood
 pressure and high blood cholesterol.  Data from the items on cigarette
 smoking will identify current smokers, former smokers, and nonsmokers.  The
 items on high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol will measure the
 number of people who have been diagnosed by health professionals as being in
 these two risk categories and the number who follow the advice of a health
 professional in treating or controlling these conditions.

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 also are uniquely identified.1
 Within confidentiality restrictions, indicators are provided for MSA-
 PMSA/non-MSA-PMSA, central city/noncentral city, farm/nonfarm, and MSA/CMSA
 size.

ATTACHMENT 2 - OVERVIEW

General

 In September 1989, the Census Bureau conducted tow surveys as supplements to
 the Current Population Survey (CPS); Veterans and Cardiovascular Disease Risk
 Factors.  Refer to Attachment 3 for an overview of the CPS.

 Sponsors of the Veterans' supplement were the Department of Veterans Affairs,
 formerly the Veteran's Administration, and the Department of Labor.  It is a
 biennial supplement that was previously administered on the CPS in November
 1987 and April 1985.  Overall response to the supplement was 91 percent for
 this collection.

 The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the Department of Health and
 Human Services was the sponsor of the Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors
 supplement.  This was the first attempt to obtain information through the CPS
 on all three of the leading causes of cardiovascular disease-cigarette
 smoking, hypertension, and high blood cholesterol.  Data on cigarette smoking
 habits were collected previously on the CPS in August 1967 and 1968, and in
 September 1985.  Response to this supplement was 94 percent.

Data Collection

 Attachment 13 is a facsimile of the September 1989 questionnaire.  It
 contains the basic labor force items on pages 13-4, 13-6, 13-8, and 13-10 and
 the supplement items on pages 13-5, 13-7, 13-9, and 13-11.  Interviews were
 conducted from September 16-22 in the full CPS sample.

 All veterans age 18 or older were asked the veteran supplement items, 32A-43.
 Items 32A and 32B were universe screens; 32B was filled by interviewers based
 on entries from corresponding items (21a and 21b) on the CPS Control Card
 (CPS-260).  See Attachment 13, page 13-13 for a facsimile.  This is the
 instrument used to collect demographic information of household members.

 Item 33A determined Vietnam theater status and was only asked of Vietnam
 veterans.  Item 34 screened for disabled veterans and items 35 through 41
 were asked only of disabled veterans.  All veterans, irrespective of
 disability status, were asked items 42 and 43.

 Household members age 15 or older were asked the cardiovascular supplement
 questions which were set into three series of items.  Items 44-48 made up the
 cigarette smoking series; questions 44, 45 and 46 being asked in the previous
 collections.  Items 49-52B comprised the high blood pressure series.  Item
 52B was asked for a particular category only if a "yes" response was received
 for the same category in item 52A.  The next series, high blood cholesterol,
 consisted of items 53-56B; with item 56B being asked in the same fashion as
 item 52B, i.e., 56B was only asked for those categories to which a "yes"
 response was received in item 56A.  Items 57 and 58 asked about the incidence
 of stroke and heart attack, respectively.

 Interviewers recorded whether the supplement interview was by self or proxy
 response in item 59.  They were instructed to make up to two personal or
 telephone callbacks before accepting a proxy interview.  Self response
 interviews were conducted for 71 percent of the total persons interviewed.

 Interviewer training for the supplements included authorization of up to two
 hours to review instructions, complete home study exercises, and complete a
 practice interview.  Copies of these instructions are not included in this
 documentation, but may be obtained upon request.

 A regional office edit was performed on the first five questionnaires
 submitted by each interviewer to determine if the supplements were being
 conducted correctly.  The offices were instructed to immediately contact any
 interviewer who, based on the first five questionnaires, seemed to be
 conducting the supplements incorrectly.

Data Processing

 Supplement Computer Edits.  Interviewed records were edited for consistency
 between items.  When possible, missing values were assigned values based on
 entries in other items.  Item 33 of the Veterans Supplement, Vietnam theater
 status, was fully allocated from a hot deck; no other items from either
 supplement were allocated.

 There were three conditions for nonresponse to the supplement items--
 supplement ineligible, item ineligible, and actual item nonresponse.
 Supplement fields were blanked for records that were out of universe for
 either the entire supplement for a particular item based on response to a
 previous item.

 If an item should have been filled but was not and could not be plugged based
 on entries in other items, the item was assigned a value of 9 or 99 if a two
 character field.

Weighting
 
 Tallying CPS Labor Force Estimates.  Use the CPS final weights, A-FNLWGT, in
 position 249-256 when tallying CPS labor force estimates, except for the
 earnings and not in labor force variables.  When tallying estimates for these
 variables, use the earnings/not in labor force weights, A-ERNLWT, in
 positions 257-264.  This weight compensates for the fact that the relative
 questionnaire items were asked in only one quarter of the CPS sample.

 Tallying Supplement Estimates.  Use the veterans weight, A-VETWGT, located in
 positions 265-272 to tally estimates from the veterans supplement data.  Use
 the final weight, A-FNLWGT, located in positions 249-256 to tally estimates
 from the cardiovascular supplement data.

 September 1989 Supplement Computer File Description

 Attachments 9-11 are the record layouts of the September 1989 supplement

 When using the file, the record type must be determined based on the variable
 H-RECTYP located in position 101 in the standard record layouts in
 Attachments 6-8.  Below is a description of each record on the file.

Interview Adult Records-H-RECTYP = 1

     Variables in the record layout that begin with the prefix "A-", or "A%"
 represent variables available for persons 15 years old or older who were
 interviewed in September 1989.  Household data appears in positions 1-114,
 demographic and labor force data in position 115-361, and supplement data in
 positions 362-424.

Children's Records-H-RECTYYP = 5

     Variables in the record layout that begin with the prefix "C-", or "C%"
 represent variables available for persons 0-14 years of age.  The household
 data appears in positions 1-114 and demographic data in positions 115-361 and
 supplement data in positions 362-424.

Armed Forces Records-H-RECTYP = 4

     Variables that begin with prefix "M-", or "M%" represent variables
 available for persons age 15 or over who are currently in the Armed Forces.
 Household and demographic information were transcribed from the CPS Control
 Card to the CPS-1 questionnaire for those persons.  Supplement data are in
 positions 362-424.
ATTACHMENT 3 - 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 57,000 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 any
 one 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 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 once every 10 years through the decennial census, and are used by
 Government policymakers 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 unemployment
 (both farm and nonfarm); nonfarm self-employed persons, domestics, and unpaid
 helpers in nonfarm family enterprises; wage and salaried 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, and their intentions as to job seeking are also available.

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 71,000 housing units or other living quarters are assigned for
 interview each month; about 57,000 of them containing approximately 114,500
 persons 15 years old and over are interviewed.  Also included are demographic
 data for approximately 33,500 children 0-14 years old and 650 Armed Forces
 members living with 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
 interviewed because the residents are not found at home after repeated calls,
 are temporarily absent, or are unavailable for other reasons.  Approximately
 14,000 noninterview households are present each month.  The resulting file
 size is approximately 163,000 records.  A more precise explanation regarding
 the CPS sample design is provided in Technical Paper 40.  The Current
 Population Survey:  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 Employment 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

 All Current Population Reports, including the other series for population
 estimates and projections and special censuses, may be obtained by
 subscription from the Government Printing Office.  They are available in the
 following subscription packages:  Population Characteristics, Special
 Studies, Farm Population, and Consumer Income series (P-20, P-23, P-27, P-60)
 combined, $71.00 per year; Population Estimates and Projections, (P-25),
 $25.00 per year.  A customer interested in all reports must subscribe to both
 subscription packages.  Alternatively, single issues may be ordered
 separately; ordering information and prices are provided in the Bureau of the
 Census Catalog, the Monthly Product Announcement (MPA), and in the Data User
 News.

Geographic Limitations

 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.  In
 producing estimates for States, the user should be aware that the primary
 sampling units (PSU's) are drawn from strata which may or may not cross State
 lines.  Consequently, the data would not be as reliable as national data, and
 the file may lose some of its utility in certain applications.  For further
 discussion of such considerations, the user should consult Technical Paper
 40, The Current Population Survey:  Design and Methodology.

 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

 Under the estimating methods used in the CPS, all of the results for a given
 month become available simultaneously and are based on returns for the entire
 panel of respondents.  The CPS estimation procedure involves weighting the
 data from each sample person.  The basic weight, which is the inverse of the
 probability of the person being in the sample, is a rough measure of the
 number of actual persons that the sample person represents.  In States
 supplemented in the 1978 and 1980 expansions, almost all sample persons
 within the same sample area have the same basic weight, but the weight may
 differ across sample areas.  The basic weight is the same for almost all
 sample persons in the unsupplemented States.  The basic weights are then
 adjusted for noninterview, and the ratio estimation procedure is applied.

 1.  Noninterview adjustment.  The weights for all interviewed households are
 adjusted to the extent needed to account for occupied sample households for
 which no information was obtained because of absence, impassable roads,
 refusals, or unavailability of the respondent for other reasons.  This
 adjustment is made separately by combinations of sample areas within each
 State and the District of Columbia, and within these, for six groups-two race
 categories (White, and Black and other) within three residence categories.
 For sample areas which are Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSA's),
 these residence categories are the central cities, and the urban and the
 rural balance of the SMSA's.  For other sample areas, the residence
 categories are urban, rural nonfarm, and rural farm.  The proportion of
 sample households not interviewed varies from 4 to 5 percent depending on
 weather, vacations, season, etc.

 2.  Ratio estimates.  The distribution of the population selected for the
 sample may differ somewhat, by chance, from that of the population as a
 whole, in such characteristics as age, race, sex, and residence.  Since these
 characteristics are closely correlated with labor force participation and
 other principal measurements made from the sample, the latter estimates can
 be substantially improved when weighted appropriately by the known
 distribution of these population characteristics.  This is accomplished
 through two stages of ratio estimates as follows:

     a.  First-stage ratio estimate.  In the CPS, a portion of the 729 sample
 areas is chosen to represent both itself and other areas not in the sample;
 the remainder of the sample areas represent only themselves.  The first-stage
 ratio estimation procedure was designed to reduce the portion of the variance
 resulting from requiring sample areas to represent nonsample areas.
 Therefore, this procedure is not applied to sample areas which represent only
 themselves.  The procedure is performed at two geographic levels:  First, by
 the four census regions (Northeast, Midwest, South, and West), and second,
 for each of the 46 States which contains nonsample areas.  The procedure
 corrects for the difference that existed at the time of the 1970 census
 between the distribution by race and residence of the population in the
 sample areas and the known race-residence distribution in the portions of the
 census region or State represented by these areas.  The regional adjustment
 is performed by metropolitan/nonmetropolitan residence and race, while the
 State adjustments is done by urban-rural status and race.

     b.  Second-stage ratio estimate.  In this stage, the sample estimates of
 the U.S. population in the categories described below are adjusted to
 independently derived current estimates of the population in the same
 categories.  The second-stage ratio estimate is performed in order to
 increase the reliability of the estimates and is carried out in two steps.
 In the first step, the sample estimates are adjusted for each State and the
 District of Columbia to an independent control for the civilian
 noninstitutional population 16 years and over, for the State.  The second
 step of the adjustment is applied to all sample persons and is a weighting to
 nationwide independent population estimates of the civilian noninstitutional
 population, 15 years and over, within 68 age-sex-race groups.  The entire
 second-stage ratio estimation procedure is iterated six times, each time
 beginning at the weights developed the previous time.  This iteration ensures
 that the sample estimates both of State population and of the National age-
 sex-race categories will be virtually equal to the independent population
 estimates.  This second-stage adjustment procedure incorporates changes
 instituted in January 1982.  The nature of these changes is discussed in
 detail in "Revisions in the Current Population Survey beginning in January
 1982," Employment and Earnings, February 1982.

 The controls by State for the civilian noninstitutional population 16 years
 and over are an arithmetic extrapolation of the trend in the growth of this
 segment of the population from the April 1, 1980 census through the latest
 available July 1, estimate, adjusted as a last step to a current estimate of
 the U.S. population of this group.  State estimates by age July 1 are
 published annually in Current Population Reports, Series P-25.  For a
 description of the methodology used in developing the State total, see Report
 640 of that series.  Descriptions of the age estimates methodology are
 available on request from the Chief of the Population Division, U.S. Bureau
 of the Census, Washington, D.C. 20233.

 Beginning with the January 1982 estimates, the independent national controls
 used for the age-sex-race groups in the final step of the second-stage ratio
 adjustment are prepared by carrying forward the April 1, 1980 total
 population age, race, and sex, taking account of the subsequent aging of the
 population, fertility, mortality, and net immigration, and then subtracting
 the estimate for the institutional population and Armed Forces.  The April 1,
 1980 total population was computed by adding together the resident
 population, consistent with that published in the 1980 census Advance
 Reports, Series PHC80-V, and the Armed Forces overseas, as compiled from
 Department of Defense reports.  Data on births and deaths between April 1,
 1980 and the estimate data are based on tabulations of vital statistics for
 the resident population made by the National Center for Health Statistics and
 data on deaths of military personnel overseas from the Department of Defense.
 Estimates of net civilian immigration are based on data provided by the
 Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Department of Defense, the Office
 of Personnel Management, and the Puerto Rico Planning Board.  The civilian
 noninstitutional population is derived by subtracting the Armed Forces and
 the institutional population for the estimate date from the total, including
 Armed Forces overseas.  The institutional population is computed by applying
 institutional proportions derived from the 1980 census to the total
 population, including Armed Forces overseas, for the estimate date.  All
 computations described above are performed in cells defined by single year of
 age, race, and sex.  The independent national control totals are then
 obtained by collapsing these cells into broader age groups for the population
 15 years old and older.

Comparability of CPS From Microdata Files With Published Sources

 Although total estimates of the population will equal published estimates,
 labor force estimates produced from a microdata file will not be directly
 comparable or identical with the published nonseasonally adjusted labor force
 data.  The major reason for this is due to a final estimation procedure
 incorporated into the production of the published nonseasonally adjusted
 data.  This procedure, known as a composite estimator, is a weighted average
 of two estimates for the current month for particular item.  The first
 estimate is the two-stage ratio estimate that includes all the estimation
 steps given above.  The second estimate consists of the composite estimate
 for the preceding month to which has been added an estimate of the change
 from the preceding month, based on that part of the sample which is common to
 the two months (about 75 percent).  This procedure is primarily used to
 increase the reliability of estimates of month-to-month change, although
 other reliability gains are also realized.  As noted above, the composite
 estimation procedure does not affect estimates of the total population.

 Another factor also inhibits microdata comparison with published labor force
 data.  This is the seasonal adjustment that is applied to many published
 statistics.  These adjustments are used to adjust for normal seasonal
 variations to help distinguish the underlying economic situation in month-to-
 month changes.  Shown below are data from January and July 1982 which
 demonstrate how estimates compiled using the final weights from the microdata
 file may differ from the published composite estimates, with and without
 seasonal adjustment.  (Refer to Technical Paper 40 for a further description
 of both the composite estimator and seasonal adjustments.)

 In various months, differences in the sample, questionnaire, and data uses
 result in the need for additional adjustment procedures to produce what is
 called a supplement weight.  Such adjustments can include, but are not
 limited to, supplemental noninterview adjustments, inflation of weights due
 to a restricted supplemental universe (such as only 4 of 8 rotation groups),
 or controlling to various independent population controls.  In some
 instances, including most October school enrollment supplements, the
 supplement weight is controlled to and agrees with, in aggregate, the
 published composite estimates.  Regardless of how the supplement weight was
 produced, when available it should be used in preparing all estimates using
 data from supplement items.  Further documentation covering the use of the
 supplemental data is included as part of the supplemental documentation.
ATTACHMENT 4 - GLOSSARY

                               Subject Concepts

 Age.  Age classification is based on the age of the person at his/her last
 birthday.  The adult universe population of marriageable age) is comprised of
 persons 15 years old and over for March supplemental data and 14 years and
 over for CPS labor force data.  Prior to 1960, the adult universe was 14
 years old and over for 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-
 employed incorporated 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 persons on layoff,
 duration of unemployment represents the number of full weeks since the
 termination of their most 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.)

 Employed.  (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 eligible for this program if the household receives (1) Aid to Families
 with Dependent Children, (2) Food Stamps, (3) Supplemental Security Income
 (SSI), and (4) certain Veterans' benefits.

 The energy assistance questions were asked for the first time in 1982.
 Questions asked in the March 1988 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 to in the past as 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 on the
 householder and his/her relatives.  (See the definition of Family.)

 Family Weight.  The weight on the family record is the March supplement
 weight of 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 a sharecropper.
 Gross receipts include the value of all products sold, government crop loans,
 money received 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 of the U.S.
 Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers the Food Stamp Program through
 State and local 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 1988 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 bout the number of months food stamps were received
 during 1986 and the total face value of all food stamps received during that
 period.

 Full-Time Workers.  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 who participated in group health insurance plans provided by
 the employer or union were asked whether part or all of the health insurance
 premiums were paid for by the union or employer and the extent of persons
 covered.

 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 arrangements 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 a housing unit when
 it is occupied as separate living quarters; that is, when the occupants do
 not live and eat with 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 and 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 an apartment shared
 by two or more unrelated individuals.

 Householder With Other Relatives (Including Spouse) 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 a member of the same household, an additional question
 is asked to determine whether her husband is in the 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 household 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 or salary;
 (2) net income from nonfarm self-employment; (3) net income from farm self-
 employment; (4) Social 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' payments 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.  On the other hand,
 household income includes amounts reported by persons who did not reside with
 the 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, Social Security,
 union dues, Medicare deductions, etc.  Also, money income does not reflect
 the fact that some 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.  These elements should 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 of public assistance, Social Security, and net income
 from interest, dividends, rents, etc.

 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
 year.  It includes wages, salary, Armed forces pay, commissions, tips, piece-
 rate payments, and cash bonuses earned, before deductions are made for taxes,
 bonds, pensions, union dues, etc.  Earnings for self-employed incorporated
 businesses are considered wage and salary.

 Income Sources - Nonfarm Self-Employment.  Net income from nonfarm self-
 employment is net money income (gross receipts minus expenses) from one'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 since 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.

 Income Sources - Farm Self-Employment.  Net income from farm self-employment
 is 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 a sharecropper.  Gross receipts include the value of all products sold,
 government crop loans, money received 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 family living is not included as part of net income.  In general,
 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; otherwise, inventory changes are not
 taken into account.

 Income Sources - Social Security.  Social Security includes Social Security
 pensions and survivors' benefits, and permanent disability insurance payments
 made by the Social Security Administration prior to deductions for medical
 insurance and railroad retirement insurance checks from the U.S. Government.
 "Medicare" reimbursements are not included.

 Income Sources - Supplemental Security Income.  Supplemental Security Income
 includes payments made by Federal, State, and local welfare agencies to low
 income persons who are (1) aged (65 years old and over), (2) blind, or (3)
 disabled.

 Income Sources - Public Assistance.  Public assistance or welfare payments
 include public assistance payments such as aid to families with dependent
 children and general assistance.

 Income Sources - Interest and Dividends.  Interest, dividends, income from
 estates or trusts, net rental income or royalties include dividends from
 stockholdings or membership in associations, interest on savings or bonds,
 periodic receipts from estates or trust funds, net income from rental of a
 house, store, or other property to others, receipts from boarders or lodgers,
 and net royalties.

 Income Sources - Unemployment Compensation, Worker's Compensation, and
 Veterans' Payments.  Unemployment compensation, veterans' payments, or
 worker's compensation includes (1) unemployment compensation received from
 government unemployment insurance agencies or private companies during period
 of unemployment and any strike benefits received from union funds; (2) money
 paid periodically by the Veterans Administration to disabled members of the
 Armed Forces or to survivors of deceased veterans, subsistence allowances
 paid to veterans for education and on-the-job training, as well as so-called
 "refunds" paid to ex-servicemen as GI insurance premiums; and (3) worker's
 compensation received periodically from public or private insurance companies
 for injuries incurred at work.  The cost of this insurance must have been
 paid by the employer and not by the person.

 Income Sources - Private and Government Pensions and Annuities.  Many
 employers and unions have established pension programs for their employees so
 that upon retirement the employee will receive regular income to replace
 his/her earnings.  Many of these programs also provide income to the
 employees if he/she becomes severely disabled, or to his/her survivors if the
 employee dies.  Other types of retirement income include annuities and paid
 up life insurance policies.  Some people purchase annuities which yield a set
 amount over a certain number of years.  Other people may convert their paid
 up life insurance policy into an annuity after they retire.

 Income Sources - Alimony and Child Support.  Alimony is money received
 periodically from a former spouse following a divorce or separation.  Child
 support is money received from a former spouse for the support of their
 children following a divorce or legal separation.  Money received from
 relatives or friends other than the former husband or wife is not considered
 as child support.

 Receipts Not Counted 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 is engaged in the
 business of selling such property, in which case the net proceeds is counted
 as income from self-employment); (2) withdrawals of bank deposits; (3) money
 borrowed; (4) tax refunds; (5) gifts; and (6) lump-sum inheritances of
 insurance payments.

 Industry, Occupation, and Class of Worker (I&O) - Current Job (basic data).
 For the employed, current job is the job held in the reference week (the week
 before the survey).  Persons with two or more jobs are classified in the job
 at which they worked the most hours during the reference week.  The
 unemployed are classified 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.

 Industry, Occupation, and Class of Worker-Longest Job (supplement data).
 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 for personal reasons, whether or not they are seeking their
 jobs.  These persons would have an Employment Status Recode (ESR) of 1 or 2
 respectively in character 12 of the person record which designates "at work"
 and "with a job, 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 they worked 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.  Unemployed.  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, job
 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 of
 long-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.  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.

 Layoff.  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.
                       PAGE 4-8 MISSING HERE
 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 1988 CPS attempted to identify all persons
 who were "covered" by Medicaid at any 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 did 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 SSI recipients living in States
 which legally require Medicaid coverage of all SSI 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
 1988 CPS 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.

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

 Nonfarm Self-employment 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 (Including Spouse) 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 1988 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 Reports, 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 with local
 housing authority, although the limits are constrained by Federal guidelines.
 Rental charges, which, in term, 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 1988 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 1988 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 Counted 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 1988 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.  Respondents 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.)

 Unemployment Compensation.  (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     WWI
     4     WWII
     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.
HOW TO USE THE DATA DICTIONARY

General

 The data dictionary describes the contents and record layout of the public-
 use computer tape file.  The first line of each data item description gives
 the data name, size of the data field, and relative begin position of the
 field.

 The next few lines contain descriptive text and any applicable notes.
 Categorical value codes and labels are given where needed.  Comment notes
 marked by an (*) are provided throughout.

     Data.  Alphabetic, numeric, and the special characters (- and %).  No
 other special characters are used.  It may be a mnemonic such as "H-DAYCMP"+
 or "H-LIVQRT," or a sequential identifier such as "H-INTRV1" or "A-WHYNL1".
 Data item names are unique throughout the entire file (all 3 record types).

     Size.  Numeric.  The size of a data item is given in characters.
 Indication of implied decimal places is provided in notes.

     Begin.  Numeric.  Contains the location in the data record of the first
 character position of the data item field.

     Decimal.  Numeric.  Contains the number of decimal places, where
 applicable.

 The first line of each data item description begins with the character "D"
 (left-justified, two characters).  The "D" flag indicates lines in the data
 dictionary containing the name, size, and begin position of each data item.
 This information (in machine-readable form) can be used to help access the
 data file.  The line beginning with the character "U" describes the universe
 for that item.  Lines containing categorical value codes and labels follow
 next and begin with the character "V".  The special character (.) denotes the
 start of the value labels.  Examples of data item descriptions follows:

ATTACHMENT 18 - SPECIFIC METROPOLITAN IDENTIFIERS

General

 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 FIPS
 MSA/PMSA code (List 4).  PMSA's can be identified by either the FIPS 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 FIPS 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.

ATTACHMENT 19 - 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 earning 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 $100,000 ($1,923.07 per
 week).  Below is a list of the appropriate topcodes.

ATTACHMENT 20 - SOURCE AND ACCURACY OF ESTIMATES

Title

 SOURCE AND ACCURACY OF ESTIMATES FOR VETERANS SUPPLEMENT

Source of Data

 The data in this microdata file come from the September 1989 Current
 Population Survey (CPS).  The Bureau of the Census conducts the survey every
 month, although this file has only September 1989 data.  The September 1989
 survey uses two sets of questions, the basic CPS and the supplement.

 Basic CPS.  The basic CPS collects primarily labor force data about the
 civilian noninstitutional population.  Interviewers ask questions concerning
 labor force participation about each member 15 years old and over in every
 sample household.

 The present CPS sample was selected from the 1980 Decennial Census files with
 coverage in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  The sample is
 continually updated to account for new residential construction.  It is
 located in 729 areas comprising 1,973 counties, independent cities, and minor
 civil divisions.  About 56,100 occupied households are eligible for interview
 every month.  Interviewers are unable to obtain interviews at about 2,500 of
 these units because the occupants are not home after repeated calls or are
 unavailable for some other reason.

 Since the introduction of the CPS, the Bureau of the Census has redesigned
 the CPS sample several times to improve the quality and reliability of the
 data and to satisfy changing data needs.  The most recent changes were
 completely implemented in July 1985.

 September 1989 Supplement.  In addition to the basic CPS questions,
 interviewers asked supplementary questions in September 1989 of veterans.
 Questions asked of veterans mainly concern period of service and disability.

 Estimation Procedure.  This survey's estimation procedure inflates weighted
 sample results to independent estimates of the civilian noninstitutional
 population of the United States by age, sex, race and Hispanic/non-Hispanic
 categories.  The independent estimates were based on statistics from the 1980
 decennial census of population; statistics on births, deaths, immigration and
 emigration; and statistics in the size of the Armed Forces.  The independent
 population estimates include some, but not all, undocumented immigrants.  The
 September supplement's estimation procedure adjusts estimates of veterans,
 age and period of service.  The monthly veteran controls for ratio estimates
 are nonveterans, other war veterans, Vietnam era veterans and other service
 veterans.

Accuracy of the Estimates

 Since the CPS estimates come from a sample, they may differ from figures from
 a complete census using the same questionnaires, instructions, and
 enumerators.  A sample survey estimate has two possible types of error:
 sampling and nonsampling.  The accuracy of an estimate depends on both types
 of error, but the full extent of the nonsampling error is unknown.
 Consequently, one should be particularly careful when interpreting results
 based on a relatively small number of cases or on small differences between
 estimates.  The standard errors for CPS estimates primarily indicate the
 magnitude of sampling error.  They also partially measure the effect of some
 nonsampling errors in responses and enumeration, but do not measure
 systematic biases in the data.  (Bias is the average over all possible
 samples of the differences between the sample estimates and the desired
 value.)

 Nonsampling Variability.  Nonsampling errors can be attributed to many
 sources.  These sources include the inability to obtain information about all
 cases in the sample, definitional difficulties, differences in the
 interpretation of questions, respondents' inability or unwillingness to
 provide correct information or to recall information, errors made in data
 collection such as in recording or coding the data, errors made in processing
 the data, errors made in estimating values for missing data, and failure to
 represent all units with the sample (undercoverage).

 CPS undercoverage results from missed housing units and missed persons within
 sample households.  Compared to the level of the 1980 Decennial Census,
 overall CPS undercoverage is about 7 percent.  CPS undercoverage varies with
 age, sex, and race.  Generally, undercoverage is larger for males than for
 females and larger for Blacks and other races combined than for Whites.
 Ratio estimation to independent age-sex-race-Hispanic population controls
 described previously partially corrects for the bias due to undercoverage.
 However, biases exist in the estimates to the extent that missed persons in
 missed households or missed persons in interviewed households have different
 characteristics from those of interviewed persons in the same age-sex-race-
 Hispanic group.  Furthermore, the independent population controls have not
 been adjusted for undercoverage in the 1980 census.

 For additional information on nonsampling error including the possible impact
 on CPS data when known, refer to Statistical Policy Working Paper 3, An Error
 Profile:  Employment as Measured by the Current Population Survey, Office of
 Federal Statistical Policy and Standards, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1978;
 and Technical Paper 40, The Current Population Survey:  Design and
 Methodology, Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Commerce.
 Sampling Variability.  Sampling variability is variation that occurred by
 chance because a sample was surveyed rather than the entire population.
 Standard errors, as calculated by methods described later in "Standard Errors
 and Their Use," are primarily measures of sampling variability, although they
 may include some nonsampling error.

 Comparability of Data.  Data obtained from the CPS and other sources are not
 entirely comparable.  This results from differences in interviewer training
 and experience and in differing survey processes.  This is an example of
 nonsampling variability not reflected in the standard errors.  Use caution
 when comparing results from different sources.

 Caution should also be used when comparing estimates obtained from this
 microdata file, which reflect 1980 census-based population controls, with
 estimates for 1980 and earlier years, which reflect 1970 census-based
 population controls.  This change in population controls had relatively
 little impact on summary measures such as means, medians, and percentage
 distributions, but did have a significant impact on levels.  For example, use
 of 1980 based population controls result in about a 2-percent increase in the
 civilian noninstitutional population and in the number of families and
 households.  Thus, estimates of levels for data collected in 1981 and later
 years will differ from those for earlier years by more than what could be
 attributed to actual changes in the population.  These differences could be
 disproportionately greater for certain subpopulation groups than for the
 total population.

 No independent population control totals for persons of Hispanic origin were
 used before 1985.  Compare Hispanic estimates over time cautiously.

 Note When Using Small Estimates.  Because of the large standard errors
 involved, summary measures (such as medians and percent distributions)
 probably do not reveal useful information when computed on a smaller base
 than 75,000.

 Take care in the interpretation of small differences.  For instance, even a
 small amount of nonsampling error can cause a borderline difference to appear
 significant or not, thus distorting a seemingly valid hypothesis test.

 Standard Errors and Their Use.  A number of approximations are required to
 derive, at a moderate cost, standard errors applicable to estimates from this
 microdata file.  Instead of providing an individual standard error for each
 estimate, generalized sets of standard errors are provided for various types
 of characteristics.  Thus, the tables show levels of magnitude of standard
 errors rather than the precise standard errors.  Standard errors for
 intermediate values not shown in the tables may be approximated by linear
 interpolation.

 Two parameters, a and b, are used to calculate the standard errors for each
 type of characteristic; they are presented in Table A-3.  These parameters
 were used to calculate the standard errors in Tables A-1 and A-2 and the
 factors in Table A-3.  They may also be used to directly calculate standard
 errors.  Methods for direct computation are given in the following sections.

 The sample estimate and its standard error enable one to construct a
 confidence interval, a range that would include the average result of all
 possible samples with a known probability.  For example, if all possible
 samples were surveyed under essentially the same general conditions and using
 the same sample design, and if an estimate and its standard error were
 calculated from each sample, then approximately 90 percent of the intervals
 from 1.6 standard errors below the estimate to 1.6 standard errors above the
 estimate would include the average results of all possible samples.

 A particular confidence interval may or may not contain the average estimate
 derived from all possible samples.  However, one can say with specified
 confidence that the interval includes the average estimate calculated from
 all possible samples.

 Standard errors may also be used to perform hypothesis testing, a procedure
 for distinguishing between population parameters using sample estimates.  One
 common type of hypothesis is that the population parameters are different.
 An example of this would be comparing the employment rate of veterans to that
 of nonveterans for 1989.

 Tests may be performed at various levels of significance, where a
 significance level is the probability of concluding that the characteristics
 are different when, in fact, they are the same.  To conclude that two
 parameters are different at the 0.10 level of significance, for example, the
 absolute value of the estimated difference between characteristics must be
 greater than or equal to 1.6 times the standard error of the difference.

 The Census Bureau uses 90-percent confidence intervals and 0.10 levels of
 significance to determine statistical validity.  Consult standard statistical
 textbooks for alternative criteria.

 Standard Errors of Estimated Numbers.  There are two ways to compute the
 approximate standard error, sx, of an estimated number shown in this report.
 The first uses the formula

                                  sx = fs                                  (1)

 where f is a factor from Table A-3, and s is the standard error of the
 estimate obtained by interpolation from Table A-1.  The second method uses
 formula (2), from which the standard errors in Table A-1 were calculated.
 This formula will provide more accurate results than formula (1).

                                     /----------
                              sx = \/ ax2 + bx                              (2)

 Here x is the size of the estimate and a and b are the parameters in Table A-
 3 associated with the particular type of characteristic.  When calculating
 standard errors for numbers from cross-tabulations involving different
 characteristics, use the factor or set of parameters for the characteristic
 which will give the largest standard error.

 Illustration.  Suppose a sample estimate for the number of employed war
 veterans who are between 35 and 44 years old is 3,025,000 for 1989.  Use
 formula (1) with f = 1.03 from Table A-3 and s = 77,000 interpolating from
 Table A-1, the approximate standard error of 3,025,000 is

                        sx = (1.03) (77,000) = 79,000

 Alternatively, using formula (2) with a = -0.000202 and b = 2,763 from Table
 A-3, the approximate standard error is

                 /-------------------------------------------
          sx = \/ (-0.000202) (3,025,000)2 + 2,763(3,025,000) = 81,000.

 So the 90 percent confidence interval for the number of employed war veterans
 who are between 35 and 44 years old is from 2,895,000 to 3,155,000, i.e.,
 3,025,000 + 1.6 (81,000).  A conclusion that the average estimate derived
 from all possible samples lies within a range computed in this way would be
 correct for roughly 90 percent of all possible samples.

 Standard Errors of Estimated Percentages.  The reliability of an estimated
 percentage, computed using sample data for both numerator and denominator,
 depends on the size of the percentage and its base.  Estimated percentages
 are relatively more reliable than the corresponding estimates of the
 numerators of the percentages, particularly if the percentages are 50 percent
 or more.  When the numerator and denominator of the percentage are in
 different categories, use the factor or parameter from Table A-3 indicated by
 the numerator.

 The approximate standard error, sx,p, of an estimated percentage can be
 obtained by use of the formula

                                sx,p = fs                                  (3)

 In this formula, f is the appropriate factor from Table A-3, and s is the
 standard error of the estimate obtained by interpolation from Table A-2.

 Alternatively, formula (4) will provide more accurate results:

                                    /-------------
                           sx,p = \/ bp(100 - p)/x                          (4)

 Here x is the total number of persons, families, households, or unrelated
 individuals in the base of the percentage, p is the percentage (0 < p < 100),
 and b is the parameter in Table A-3 associated with the characteristic in the
 numerator of the percentage.

 Illustration.  Suppose in 1989 15.3 percent of 6,851,000 Vietnam-era war
 veterans over 34 years old are unemployed.  Using formula (3) with f = 1.00
 from Table A-3 and s = 0.70 interpolating from Table A-2, the approximate
 standard error for 15.3 percent is

                        sx,p = (1.00) (0.70) = 0.70

 Alternatively, using formula (4), and b = 2,619 from Table A-3, the standard
 error of 15.3 percent is approximately

                   /------------------------------------------------
          sx,p = \/ (2,619) (15.3) (100.0 - 15.3)/6,851,000 = 0.7.

 So, rounded to one decimal place, the 90-percent confidence interval for the
 estimated percentage                     among Vietnam-era war veterans over
 34 years old is from 14.2 to 16.4 percent, il.e., 15.3 + 1.6 (0.7           .

 Standard Error of a Difference.  The standard error of the difference between
 two sample estimates is approximately equal to

                                      /---------
                             sx-y = \/ sx2 + sy2

 where sx and sy are the standard errors of the estimates, x and y.  The
 estimates can be numbers, percentages, ratios, etc.  This will represent the
 actual standard error quite accurately for the difference between estimates
 of the same characteristic in two different areas, or for the difference
 between separate and uncorrelated characteristics in the same area.  However,
 if there is a high positive (negative) correlation between the two
 characteristics, the formula will overestimate (underestimate) the true
 standard error.

 Illustration.  As stated above, suppose in 1989 15.3 percent of 6,851,000
 Vietnam-era war veterans over 34 years old are unemployed.  Also suppose 6.1
 percent of 52,376,000 nonveterans over 34 years old are unemployed.  The
 difference between the two estimates is 9.2 percent.  The previous
 illustration shows the approximate standard error for veterans here is 0.7
 percent.  Using formula (4) and b = 2,619 from Table A-3, the approximate
 standard error for nonveterans here is

                    /--------------------------------------
           sx,p = \/ (2,619) (6.1) (100.0 - 6.1)/52,376,000 = 0.2.

 Using these standard errors and formula (5) the approximate standard error of
 the difference is

                                   /----------------
                          sx-y = \/ (0.7)2 + (0.2)2 = 0.7.

 The 90 percent confidence interval around the difference is from 8.1 to 10.3
 percent, i.e., 9.2 + 1.6 (0.7).  Because this interval does not contain zero
 we may conclude with 90 percent confidence that the unemployment rate for
 Vietnam war-era veterans over 34 years old is greater than that of
 nonveterans in the same age range.

ATTACHMENT 21 - SOURCE AND ACCURACY OF ESTIMATES

Title

 SOURCE AND ACCURACY OF ESTIMATES FOR SMOKING AND CARDIOVASCULAR
                      DISEASE SUPPLEMENT
Source Of Data

 The data in this microdata file come from the September 1989 Current
 Population Survey (CPS).  The Bureau of the Census conducts the survey every
 month, although this file has only September 1989 data.  The September 1989
 survey uses two sets of questions, the basic CPS and the supplement.

 Basic CPS.  The basic CPS collects primarily labor force data about the
 civilian noninstitutional population.  Interviewers ask questions concerning
 labor force participation about each member 14 years old and over in every
 sample household.

 The present CPS sample was selected from the 1980 Decennial Census files with
 coverage in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  The sample is
 continually updated to account for new residential construction.  It is
 located in 729 areas comprising 1,973 counties, independent cities, and minor
 civil divisions.  About 56,100 occupied households are eligible for interview
 every month.  Interviewers are unable to obtain interviews at about 2,500 of
 these units because the occupants are not home after repeated calls or are
 unavailable for some other reason.

 Since the introduction of the CPS, the Bureau of the Census has redesigned
 the CPS sample several times to improve the quality and reliability of the
 data and to satisfy changing data needs.  The most recent changes were
 completely implemented in July 1985.

 September 1989 Supplement.  In addition to the basic CPS questions,
 interviewers asked supplementary questions in September 1989 on smoking and
 cardiovascular disease.

 Estimation Procedure.  This survey's estimation procedure inflates weighted
 sample results to independent estimates of the civilian noninstitutional
 population of the United States by age, sex, race and Hispanic/non-Hispanic
 categories.  The independent estimates were based on statistics from 1980
 Decennial Census of Population; statistics on births, deaths, immigration and
 emigration; and statistics on the size of the Armed Forces.  The independent
 population estimates include some, but not all, undocumented immigrants.

Accuracy of the Estimates

 Since the CPS estimates come from a sample, they may differ from figures from
 a complete census using the same questionnaires, instructions, and
 enumerators.  A sample survey estimate has two possible types of error:
 sampling and nonsampling.  The accuracy of an estimate depends on both types
 of error, but the full extent of the nonsampling error is unknown.
 Consequently, one should be particularly careful when interpreting results
 based on a relatively small number of cases or on small differences between
 estimates.  The standard errors for CPS estimates primarily indicate the
 magnitude of sampling error.  They also partially measure the effect of some
 nonsampling errors in responses and enumeration, but do not measure
 systematic biases in the data.  (Bias is the average over all possible
 samples of the differences between the sample estimates and the desired
 value.)

 Nonsampling Variability.  Nonsampling errors can be attributed to many
 sources.  These sources include the inability to obtain information about all
 cases in the sample, definitional difficulties, differences in the
 interpretation of questions, respondents' inability or unwillingness to
 provide correct information or to recall information, errors made in data
 collection such as in recording or coding the data, errors made in processing
 the data, errors made in estimating values for missing data, and failure to
 represent all units with the sample (undercoverage).

 CPS undercoverage results from missed housing units and missed persons within
 sample households.  Compared to the level of the 1980 Decennial Census,
 overall CPS undercoverage is about 7 percent.  CPS undercoverage varies with
 age, sex, and race.  Generally, undercoverage is larger for males than for
 females and larger for Blacks and other races combined than for Whites.  As
 described previously, ratio estimation to independent age-sex-race-Hispanic
 population controls partially corrects for the bias due to undercoverage.
 However, biases exist in the estimates to the extent that missed persons in
 missed households or missed persons in interviewed households have different
 characteristics from those of interviewed persons in the same age-sex-race-
 Hispanic group.  Furthermore, the independent population controls have not
 been adjusted for undercoverage in the 1980 census.

 For additional information on nonsampling error including the possible impact
 on CPS data when known, refer to Statistical Policy Working Paper 3, An Error
 Profile:  Employment as Measured by the Current Population Survey, Office of
 Federal Statistical Policy and Standards, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1978;
 and Technical Paper 40, The Current Population Survey:  Design and
 Methodology, Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Commerce.

 Sampling Variability.  Sampling variability is variation that occurred by
 chance because a sample was surveyed rather than the entire population.
 Standard errors, as calculated by methods described later in "Standard Errors
 and Their Use," are primarily measures of sampling variability, although they
 may include some nonsampling error.

 Comparability of Data.  Data obtained from the CPS and other sources are not
 entirely comparable.  This results from differences in interviewer training
 and experience and in differing survey processes.  This is an example of
 nonsampling variability not reflected in the standard errors.  Use caution
 when comparing results from different sources.

 Caution should also be used when comparing estimates obtained from this
 microdata file, which reflect 1980 census-based population controls, with
 estimates for 1980 and earlier years, which reflect 1970 census-based
 population controls.  This change in population controls had relatively
 little impact on summary measures such as means, medians, and percentage
 distributions, but did have a significant impact on levels.  For example, use
 of 1980 based population controls result in about a 2-percent increase in the
 civilian noninstitutional population and in the number of families and
 households.  Thus, estimates of levels for data collected in 1981 and later
 years will differ from those for earlier years by more than what could be
 attributed to actual changes in the population.  These differences could be
 disproportionately greater for certain subpopulation groups than for the
 total population.

 No independent population control totals for persons of Hispanic origin were
 used before 1985.  Compare Hispanic estimates over time cautiously.

 Note When Using Small Estimates.  Because of the large standard errors
 involved, summary measures (such as medians and percent distributions)
 probably do not reveal useful information when computed on a smaller base
 than 75,000.  Take care in the interpretation of small differences.  For
 instance, even a small amount of nonsampling error can cause a borderline
 difference to appear significant or not, thus distorting a seemingly valid
 hypothesis test.

 Standard Errors and Their Use.  A number of approximations are required to
 derive, at a moderate cost, standard errors applicable to estimates from this
 microdata file.  Instead of providing an individual standard error for each
 estimate, two parameters, a and b, are provided to calculate standard errors
 for each type of characteristic.  These parameters are in Table A.

 The sample estimate and its standard error enable one to construct a
 confidence interval, a range that would include the average result of all
 possible samples with a known probability.  For example, if all possible
 samples were surveyed under essentially the same general conditions and using
 the same sample design, and if an estimate and its standard error were
 calculated from each sample, then approximately 90 percent of the intervals
 from 1.6 standard errors below the estimate to 1.6 standard errors above the
 estimate would include the average result of all possible samples.

 A particular confidence interval may or may not contain the average estimate
 derived from all possible samples.  However, one can say with specified
 confidence that the interval includes the average estimate calculated from
 all possible samples.

 Standard errors may also be used to perform hypothesis testing, a procedure
 for distinguishing between population parameters using sample estimates.  One
 common type of hypothesis is that the population parameters are different.
 An example of this would be comparing the proportion of White smokers to the
 proportion of Black smokers.

 Tests may be performed at various levels of significance, where a
 significance level is the probability of concluding that the characteristics
 are different when, in fact, they are the same.  To conclude that two
 parameters are different at the 0.10 level of significance, for example, the
 absolute value of the estimated difference between characteristics must be
 greater than or equal to 1.6 times the standard error of the difference.

 The Census Bureau uses 90-percent confidence intervals and 0.10 levels of
 significance to determine statistical validity.  Consult standard statistical
 textbooks for alternative criteria.

 Standard Errors of Estimated Numbers.  The approximate standard error, sx, of
 an estimated number from this microdata file can be obtained using the
 formula,
                                      /---------
                               sx = \/ ax2 + bx                             (1)

 Here x is the size of the estimate and a and b are the parameters in Table A
 associated with the particular type of characteristic.  When calculating
 standard errors for numbers from cross-tabulations involving different
 characteristics, use the set of parameters for the characteristic which will
 give the largest standard error.

 Illustration.  Suppose that in September 1989 there were 43,030,000 persons
 who currently smoke.  Using formula (1) with a = -0.000017 and b = 3,081 from
 Table A, the approximate standard error of 43,030,000 is

          sx =  (-0.000017) (43,030,000)2 + 3,081(43,030,000) = 318,000.
 So the 90-percent confidence interval for the number of current smokers is
 from 45,521,000 to 43,539,000, i.e., 43,030,000 + 1.6 (318,000).  A
 conclusion that the average estimate derived from all possible samples lies
 within a range computed in this way would be correct for roughly 90 percent
 of all possible samples.

 Standard Errors of Estimated Percentages.  The reliability of an estimated
 percentage, computed using sample data for both numerator and denominator,
 depends on the size of the percentage and its base.  Estimated percentages
 are relatively more reliable than the corresponding estimates of the
 numerators of the percentages, particularly if the percentages are 50 percent
 or more.  When the numerator and denominator of the percentage are in
 different categories, use the parameter from Table A indicated by the
 numerator.  The approximate standard error, sx,p, of an estimated percentage
 can be obtained by use of the formula

                                    /--------------
                           sx,p = \/ bp(100 - p)/x                          (2)

 Here x is the total number of persons, families, households, or unrelated
 individuals in the base of the percentage, p is the percentage (0 < p < 100),
 and b is the parameter in Table A associated with the characteristic in the
 numerator of the percentage.

 Illustration.  Suppose that in September 1989, 51.9 percent of the 43,030,000
 current smokers were male.  Using formula (2) with b = 3,081 from Table A,
 the standard error of 51.9 percent is approximately

                        /------------------------------
               sx,p = \/    3,081   51.9 (100.0 - 51.9) = 0.4.
                         43,030,000

 So, rounded to one decimal place, the 90-percent confidence interval for the
 estimated percentage of male smokers is from 51.3 to 52.5 percent, i.e., 51.9
 + 1.6 (0.4).

 Standard Error of a Difference.  The standard error of the difference between
 two sample estimates is approximately equal to

                                      /---------
                             sx-y = \/ sx2 + sy2                             (3)

 where sx and sy are the standard errors of the estimates, x and y.  The
 estimates can be numbers, percentages, ratios, etc.  This will represent the
 actual standard error quite accurately for the difference between estimates
 of the same characteristic in two different areas, or for the difference
 between separate and uncorrelated characteristics in the same area.  However,
 if there is a high positive (negative) correlation between the two
 characteristics, the formula will overestimate (underestimate) the true
 standard error.

 Illustration.  Suppose that in September 1989, 21.5 percent of 20,838,000
 White persons age 18 to 24 years old currently smoke compared to 12.4 percent
 of the 3,512,000 Black persons of the same age group.  The apparent
 difference between the two estimates is 9.1 percent.  Using formula (2) with
 b = 3,081 from Table A, the approximate standard error for 21.5 percent is sx
 = 0.5 and 12.4 percent is sy = 1.0.  Using formula (3) with these standard
 errors, the approximate standard error of the difference 9.1 percent is

                                   /----------------
                          sx-y = \/ (0.5)2 + (1.0)2 = 1.1.

 The 90 percent confidence interval around the difference is from 7.3 to 10.9
 percent, i.e., 9.1 + 1.6 (1.1).  Because this interval does not contain zero
 we may conclude with 90 percent confidence that the percentage of smokers
 among Whites aged 18 to 24 years old is greater than that of Blacks in the
 same age group.
