|Title:||Current Population Survey, June 1980 [United States]|
|Primary Investigator(s):||United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census|
|Abstract:||The Current Population Survey (CPS) is a household sample survey conducted monthly by the Census Bureau to provide estimates of employment, unemployment, and other characteristics of the general labor force, estimates of the population as a whole, and estimates of various subgroups in the population. The entire non-institutionalized population of the United States is sampled to obtain the respondents for this survey series. The June files contain the core of questions included in every CPS as well as a special series of questions which investigate the issues of fertility and child rearing. The files include data on birth history, birth expectations, and child care arrangements. Data for women 15-59 years of age include the total number of children ever born, date of birth of the first and most recent child, and date of first marriage. Women 18-44 years of age were asked the number of children they still expected to have. All currently employed women 18-44 years of age with a child under five in the household were asked about child care arrangements including location, hours when care is provided, if cash or non-cash payment is made, and whether women would work more hours if satisfactory child care could be provided. Please note that some of the June files possess subtitles. This reflects a shift in Census Bureau policy toward the assignment of more explicit titles to the various CPS surveys. Also, starting with 1984, the survey universe has been expanded to include all male members of the Armed Forces living in civilian housing units.|
