Summary Tape File 1 (STF 1) consists of four sets of computer-readable data files containing detailed tabulations of the nation's population and housing characteristics produced from the 1980 Census. This series is comprised of STF 1A, STF 1B, STF 1C, and STF 1D. The STF 1 National Subset file was created by ICPSR in conjunction with the National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging (NACDA). This file is a subset of STF 1 and has data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, for each of the approximately 3,150 counties and county equivalents in the United States, and for approximately 450 incorporated and unincorporated cities in the nation with populations of 50,000 persons or more. There are 321 substantive data variables organized in the form of 59 "tables," as well as standard geographic identification variables. All of the data items contained in STF 1 were tabulated from the "complete count" or "100-percent" questions included on the 1980 Census questionnaire. The data are provided in the original Census Bureau format so they can be accessed by CENSPAC and other software packages that are oriented toward STF 1 data in the format provided by the Census Bureau.
