Abstract:This dataset contains information from the Survey of Income and Education (SIE) conducted during the months of April through July of 1976 by the Census Bureau for the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The survey served as a supplement to the yearly Current Population Survey and was conducted to obtain reliable state-by-state data on the numbers of children in local areas with family incomes below the federal poverty level. The information was used to facilitate funding under Title 1, Elementary and Secondary Education Act by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The Survey of Income and Education includes questions used in the Current Population Survey and also contains additional exclusive questions covering school enrollment, disability, health insurance, bilingualism, food stamp recipiency, assets, and housing costs. The hierarchical file structure includes household, family, and individual records. Sub-state geographic units are not extensively identified as the original survey design attempted to facilitate analysis at the state level. The size of the survey sample and the resulting dataset are large. Approximately 158,500 households were selected for interviewing. The dataset consists of nine files (one for each of the census divisions), comprising a total of 4,235,170 card-image equivalents.
Universe:158,500 U.S. households, selected independently in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
