Inventory of Federal Data Bases Related to the Measurement of Poverty. The Measure of Poverty, Technical Paper IX.
Citro, Connie; And Others
This technical paper provides an inventory of Federal data bases that are related to the definition and measurement of poverty. An attempt was made to make the inventory as complete as possible. The report is in two parts: Part A covers the Departments of Agriculture; Health, Education, and Welfare; Housing and Urban Development; Labor; and Transportation. Data bases from these departments are described. Listings of public use computerized microdata files prepared from data bases are also provided. Where no public use data files have been prepared, this fact is noted. Coverage is limited to Federal data bases, including, however, files prepared under contract by outside organizations. Part B covers the extensive data bases of the Bureau of the Census. Here the focus is on the major programs directed by this Bureau. Each program is defined, its geographic coverage is reported, and data items and resulting media availability are discussed. In all cases, source references for additional information are given. In addition to the Bureau of the Census, a brief description of the Bureau of Economic Analysis in the Department of Commerce is included. (Author/AM)
