description:
The Public Use Microdata Samples (PUMS) from the 1980 Census contain person- and household-level information from the "long-form" questionnaires distributed to a sample of the population enumerated in the 1980 Census. The B Sample contains information for each state, and for households and persons residing in metropolitan areas that are too small to be separately identified and/or that cross state boundaries. Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs) and county groups are defined differently here than in the A Sample [CENSUS OF POPULATION AND HOUSING, 1980 [UNITED STATES]: PUBLIC USE MICRODATA SAMPLE (A SAMPLE): 5-PERCENT SAMPLE (ICPSR 8101)]. Most states cannot be identified in their entirety. As a percentage of the l-Percent Public Use Microdata Sample (B Sample) [CENSUS OF POPULATION AND HOUSING, 1980 [UNITED STATES]: PUBLIC USE MICRODATA SAMPLE (B SAMPLE): 1-PERCENT SAMPLE (ICPSR 8170)], this file constitutes a 1-in-1000 sample, and contains all household- and person-level variables from the original B Sample. Household-level variables include housing tenure, year structure was built, number and types of rooms in dwelling, plumbing facilities, heating equipment, taxes and mortgage costs, number of children, and household and family income. Person-level variables include sex, age, marital status, race, Spanish origin, income, occupation, transportation to work, and education.
