description:
This dataset is the bridge between the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) 1992 and 1993 panels and the Survey of Program Dynamics (SPD) 1998-2002 annual surveys. The data collected in the 1992 and 1993 SIPP panels provide extensive background information from which to determine the effects of welfare reform. Interviewing the same households in the SPD will provide data covering the baseline pre-reform period, the reform implementation period, and the medium-term post-reform period. The data from SPD present estimates of the economic status and activities of the population of the United States. SPD provides monthly labor force data and, in addition, supplies supplemental data on work experience, income, and noncash benefits. Comprehensive work experience information is given on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 15 years old and over, as well as weeks worked and hours per week worked, reasons for not working full-time, total income, and income components. Information is available not only for persons currently in the labor force but also for those who are outside the labor force. Questions cover respondents' current desire for work, their past work experience, and their intentions for job-seeking. SPD also contains data covering nine noncash income sources: food stamps, school lunch programs, employer-provided group health insurance plans, employer-provided pension plans, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance. Basic demographic, social, and economic characteristics are supplied for each member of the household surveyed, including age, sex, race, ethnic origin, marital status, household relationship, education, and veteran status. Limited data are provided on housing unit characteristics such as number of units in structure and tenure.
