1977 U.S. Current Population Survey: Selected Variables-Females
The Current Population Survey (CPS), which is conducted monthly by the Bureau of the Census, provides estimates of employment, unemployment, and other demographic statistics. The June 1977 CPS contained supplementary questions, asked of women only. These questions obtained information about their marital and fertility histories, including total number of liveborn children, birth dates of youngest and oldest children, and details of child-care arrangements for those who worked. The study contains information for 61,847 women from the 50 states and the District of Columbia, from households selected to be representative of the U.S. as a whole. 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.
