|Primary Investigator(s):||United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census|
|Abstract:||This is an extract from the March Current Population Survey. Identical extracts are available from 1968 through 1994. These extracts were created by Sheldon Danziger to facilitate the study of poverty. The unit of analysis in these extracts is the family. Another set of extracts has the individual as the unit of analysis. Detail is provided on the economic contribution of adult members of the family, the head of the family, and the wife of the head. The data are organized so that one can study female-headed families, dual earner families, and families where only the husband works.|
