Abstract:This extraction of data from 1970 decennial Census files (CENSUS OF POPULATION AND HOUSING, 1970 [UNITED STATES]: SUMMARY TAPE FILES 4A, 4B, 4C [ICPSR 9014, 8127, 8107] and STF 5A, 5B, and 5C) was designed to provide a set of contextual variables to be matched to any survey dataset that has been coded for the geographic location of respondents, such as the PANEL STUDY OF INCOME DYNAMICS, 1968-1988 (ICPSR 7439). This geographic area data can also be analyzed independently with neighborhoods, labor market areas, etc., as the units of analysis. Over 120 variables were selected from the original Census sources, and more than 100 variables were derived from those component variables. The variables characterize geographic areas in terms of population counts, ethnicity, family structure, income and poverty, education, residential mobility, labor force activity, and housing. The geographic areas range from neighborhoods, through intermediate levels of geography, through large economic areas, and beyond to large regions. These variables were selected from the Census data for their relevance to problems associated with poverty and income determination, and 80 percent were present in comparable form in both the 1970 and 1980 Census datasets.
