|Title:||Current Population Survey, May 1988 [United States]: Survey of Employee Benefits|
|Primary Investigator(s):||United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census|
|Abstract:||This dataset includes information on labor force activity for the week prior to the survey. Comprehensive data are provided on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 14 years old and over. Also included are personal characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, household relationship, educational background, and Spanish origin. The supplement includes data on pension and retirement plan coverage through employer- or union-sponsored retirement plans, as well as individual retirement plans (IRAs) and Keoghs. Questions were asked of all persons employed for pay in four rotation groups common to the March 1988 Current Population Survey (CPS). Income and work experience data from the March income supplement are also included for individuals in these four rotation groups. In addition, the May supplement file was matched to the June CPS file to pick up that month's earnings data, and it was matched to the March income supplement to pick up detailed income information. The May supplement can be viewed as having three distinct parts: CPS labor force data, employee benefits supplement data, and March income data.|
