description:
This is a special microdata file containing selected asset, debt and housing information for economic family units as collected in the 1984 Survey of ConsumerFinances. Earlier surveys on family asses ts and debts were conducted in 1956,1959, 1964, 1970 and 1977. The results of these surveys are published in CatalogueNumbers 13-508, 13-514, 13-525, 13-547 and 13-572 respectively, and differences in concepts and survey coverage are available by consulting these reports.The income data contained in these files refers to the calendar year 1983,while the asset and debt data refer to May 1984.These files contain data collected in the Survey of Consumer Finances. Economic family variables include detailed income by source and family characteristics.With this file users may identify specific family types such as dual-earner families and lone-parent families. Information is also provided on earnings,transfers, and total income for the head and spouse of the economic family unit, as well as personal and labour-related characteristics. The sample is designed to represent approximately 98% of the population.Excluded population groups are residents of the Yukon and Northwest Territories; residents of Indian reserves; residents of military barracks; and inmates of institutions such as prisons, penitentiaries, jails, reformatories, mental hospitals, tuberculosis hospitals, sanitoria, orphanages and homes for the aged.Statistics Canada interviewers contact each of the households in the samplethrough personal and/or telephone interviews to obtain information needed to produce the labour force data. The sample is based on dwellings. A dwelling may include more than one household. Once a dwelling is selected, it remains in the sample for a period of six months. Each interviewer contacts approximately 65 dwellings and conducts a personal interview in all dwellings where interviews are being held for the first time. In most areas, provided the respondent agrees, subsequent interviews are conducted by telephone. The sample employed for the Survey of Consumer Finances is the Labour Force Survey sample. Note: Commencing with the 1998 microdata files, annual cross-sectional income data will be sourced from the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics(SLID).
