|Title:||Census of Population and Housing, 1980 [United States]: Public Use Microdata Sample: 1% (D Sample)|
|Primary Investigator(s):||United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census|
|Abstract:||The Public Use Microdata Samples (PUMS) from the 1980 Census contain individual-level and household-level information from the ''long-form'' questionnaires distributed to a sample of the population enumerated in the Census. For PUMS-D, which is a one percent sample, a unique geographic scheme was employed in which counties are grouped into labor market areas. While the A, B, and C PUMS files are hierarchical in structure and contain two types of records (''household'' and ''person'' records), the PUMS-D file has been rectangularized, with information from the household records added at the beginning of each corresponding person record. All standard PUMS variables are provided in this file, including (1)housing information such as year structure was built, plumbing facilities, heating equipment, fuel used, vehicles available, mortgage, rent, and taxes, and (2)person information such as demographic characteristics, schooling, occupation, place of work, transportation to work, and income.|
