1982 U.S. Current Population Survey: Selected Variables-Females
The June 1982 supplementary survey on marital and fertility history and child-care practices conducted in conjunction with the Current Population Survey (CPS) collected information from a sample of 64,842 women, representative of the U.S. as a whole, from the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The CPS, which is conducted monthly by the Bureau of the Census, provides estimates of employment, unemployment, and other demographic statistics. In the supplement, women 18-59 who had ever been married were asked questions concerning the total number of their liveborn children, the birth dates of the oldest and youngest children, and the date of their first marriage. Women 18-34 were also asked about birth expectations for the future. Information about arrangements for child-care for children under the age of 5 was obtained from women who were currently employed, and education and employment information for current spouses was also obtained. The microcomputer version of the raw data is an extract of 1,013 cases.
Note for users of DAAPPP Data Sets #01-B1
DAAPPP data sets 01 through B1 are comprised of a User's Guide, SPSS syntax files (*.SPS or *.SPX) and raw data files only. Most of these datasets contain SPSS syntax files that use Job Control Language (JCL) from 1980s versions of SPSS-X. Because the syntax is old, the syntax files require editing to conform to the current syntax standards used by SPSS/Windows or SPSS/Unix. If you require technical assistance in using or editing these syntax files, please contact Sociometrics' Data Support Group at 800.846.3475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
