The Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) is an ongoing data collection effort begun in 1968 in an attempt to fill the need for a better understanding of the determinants of family income and its changes. The PSID has continued to trace individuals from the original national sample of approximately 4,800 households, whether those individuals are living in the same dwelling or with the same people. The investigators hoped to discover whether most sho rt-term changes in economic status are due to forces outside the family or if they can be traced to something in the individual's own background or in the pattern of his or her thinking and behavior. The data can shed light on what causes family income to rise above or fall below the poverty line. In line with the theoretical model, the questions asked fall generally under the headings of economic status, economic behavior, demographics, and attitudes. Specifically, they deal with topics such as employment, income sources and amounts, housing, car ownership, food expenditures, transportation, do-it-yourself home maintenance and car repairs, education, disability, time use, family background, family composition changes, and residential location. This collection is comprised of the PSID Latino sample data. For these files, a Latino was defined as having at least one parent solely of Mexican, Cuban, or Puerto Rican ancestry, or having at least two (any two) grandparents solely of Mexican, Cuban, or Puerto Rican ancestry. Part 1, 1990 Latino Sample Family-Individual File, offers data on individuals who were members of the 2,043 households in the 1990 PSID Latino sample. This sample was taken from Temple University's 1989 Latino National Political Survey (LNPS). To permit comparisons across ethnic groups, a second file, Part 2, 1989 Core Sample Family-Individual File for Use With Latino Sample, is provided. This file contains data on members of the original 1989 PSID sample. Part 3, 1990 Latino Sample Nonresponse File, presents data on Latino individuals who responded to the 1989 LNPS but were not successfully followed and reinterviewed in the 1990 PSID Latino wave. Information is included on language proficiency, immigration, family earnings, school status, general health status, and employment.
