Attachment 2 - Overview- Current Population Survey

Introduction

The Current Population Survey (CPS) is the source of the official government statistics on employment and unemployment. The CPS has been conducted monthly for over 50 years. Currently, we obtain interviews from about 48,000 households monthly, scientifically selected on the basis of area of residence to represent the nation as a whole, individual states, and other specified areas. Each household is interviewed once a month for four consecutive months one year, and again for the corresponding time period a year later. This technique enables us to obtain reliable month-to-month and year-to-year comparisons at a reasonable cost while minimizing the inconvenience to any one household.

Although the main purpose of the survey is to collect information on the employment situation, a very important secondary purpose is to collect information on demographic characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, educational attainment, family relationship, occupation, and industry. From time to time, additional questions are included on health, education, income, and previous work experience. The statistics resulting from these questions serve to update similar information collected once every 10 years through the decennial census, and are used by government policymakers and legislators as important indicators of our nation's economic situation and for planning and evaluating many government programs.

The CPS provides current estimates of the economic status and activities of the population of the United States. Because it is not possible to develop one or two overall figures (such as the number of unemployed) that would adequately describe the whole complex of labor market phenomena, the CPS is designed to provide a large amount of detailed and supplementary data. Such data are made available to meet a wide variety of needs on the part of users of labor market information.

Thus, the CPS is the only source of monthly estimates of total employment (both farm and nonfarm); nonfarm self-employed persons, domestics, and unpaid helpers in nonfarm family enterprises; wage and salaried employees; and, finally, estimates of total unemployment.

It provides the only available distribution of workers by the number of hours worked (as distinguished from aggregate or average hours for an industry), permitting separate analyses of part-time workers, workers on overtime, etc. The survey is also the only comprehensive current source of information on the occupation of workers and the industries in which they work. Information is available from the survey not only for persons currently in the labor force but also for those who are outside the labor force. The characteristics of such persons - whether married women with or without young children, disabled persons, students, older retired workers, etc., can be determined. Information on their current desire for work, their past work experience, and their intentions as to job seeking are also available.

For a more detailed discussion about the basic labor force data gathered on a monthly basis in the CPS survey, see "Revisions in the Current Population Survey Effective January 1994" in the February 1994 issue of Employment and Earnings published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

CPS Sample Design

The current CPS sample is selected based on 1990 census information. The first stage of the 1990 sample design created 2,007 geographic areas called primary sampling units (PSUs) in the entire United States. These PSUs were grouped into strata within each state. Some of these PSUs formed strata by themselves and were in sample with certainty, which is referred to as self-representing. Of the remaining nonself-representing PSUs, one PSU was selected from each stratum with the probability of selection proportional to the population of the PSU. A total of 754 PSUs were selected for sample containing 2,121 counties, minor civil divisions, and independent cities. The second stage of the sample design selected housing units within these PSUs.

Approximately 60,000 housing units are assigned for interview each month, of which about 50,500 are occupied and thus eligible for interview. The remainder are units found to be destroyed, vacant, converted to nonresidential use, containing persons whose usual place of residence is elsewhere, or ineligible for other reasons. Of the 50,500 occupied housing units, approximately 5 percent are not interviewed in a given month due to temporary absence (vacation, etc.), the residents are not found at home after repeated attempts, inability of persons contacted to respond, unavailability for other reasons, and refusals to cooperate. The interviewed households contain approximately 94,000 persons 15 years old and over, approximately 28,000 children 0-14 years old, and about 450 Armed Forces members living with civilians either on or off base within these households. A more precise explanation regarding the CPS sample design is provided in "Explanatory Notes and Estimates of Error: Household Data - Sampling" in any issue of Employment and Earnings.

Relationship of Current Population Survey Files to Publications

Each month, a significant amount of information about the labor force is published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in the Employment and Earnings and Monthly Labor Review reports.

As mentioned previously, the CPS also serves as a vehicle for supplemental inquiries on subjects other than employment, which are periodically added to the questionnaire. From the basic and supplemental data, the Bureau of the Census issues three series of publications under the general title Current Population Reports:

P-20 Population Characteristics
P-23 Special Studies
P-60 Consumer Income

All Current Population Reports, including the other series forpopulation estimates and projections and special censuses, may be obtained by subscription from the U.S. Government Printing Office at 202-783-3238. Subscriptions are available as follows: Population Characteristics, Special Studies, and Consumer Income series (P-20, P-23, P-60) combined, $101 per year (sold as a package only); Population Estimates and Projections, (P-25), $27 per year. Single issues may be ordered separately; ordering information and prices are provided in the Bureau of the Census Catalog and Guide, the Monthly Product Announcement (MPA), and in Census and You. Selected reports also may be accessed on the INTERNET at http://www.census.gov/main/www/a2z/P.

Gegraphic Limitations

The CPS sample was selected so that specific reliability criteria were met nationally, for each of the 50 States and for the District of Columbia. Since 1985, these reliability criteria have been maintained through periodic additions and deletions in the State samples. Estimates formed for geographic areas identified on the microdata file which are smaller than states are not as reliable.

Weights

Under the estimating methods used in the CPS, all of the results for a given month become available simultaneously and are based on returns for the entire panel of respondents. The CPS estimation procedure involves weighting the data from each sample person. The base weight, which is the inverse of the probability of the person being in the sample, is a rough measure of the number of actual persons that the sample person represents. Almost all sample persons in the same state have the same base weight, but the weights across states are different. Selection probabilities may also differ for some sample areas due to field subsampling, which is done when areas selected for the sample contain many more households than expected. The base weights are then adjusted for noninterview, and the ratio estimation procedure is applied.

  1. Noninterview adjustment. The weights for all interviewed households are adjusted to the extent needed to account for occupied sample households for which no information was obtained because of absence, impassable roads, refusals, or unavailability of the respondent for other reasons. This noninterview adjustment is made separately for clusters of similar sample areas that are usually, but not necessarily, contained within a state. Similarity of sample areas is based on Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) status and size. Within each cluster, there is a further breakdown by residence. Each MSA cluster is split by "central city" and "balance of the MSA". Each non-MSA cluster is split by "urban" and "rural" residence categories. The proportion of occupied sample households not interviewed fluctuates around 5 percent depending on weather, vacations, etc.
  2. Ratio estimates. The distribution of the population selected for the sample may differ somewhat, by chance, from that of the population as a whole in such characteristics as age, race, sex, and state of residence. Because these characteristics are closely correlated with labor force participation and other principal measurements made from the sample, the survey estimates can be substantially improved when weighted appropriately by the known distribution of these population characteristics. This is accomplished through two stages of ratio adjustment as follows:
    1. First-stage ratio estimate. The purpose of the first-stage ratio adjustment is to reduce the contribution to variance that results from selecting a sample of PSUs rather than drawing sample households from every PSU in the nation. This adjustment is made to the CPS weights in two race cells: black and nonblack; it is applied only to PSUs that are nonself-representing and for those states that have a substantial number of black households. The procedure corrects for differences that existed in each state cell at the time of the 1990 census between 1) the race distribution of the population in sample PSUs and 2) the race distribution of all PSUs (both 1 and 2 exclude self-representing PSUs).
    2. Second-stage ratio estimate. This procedure substantially reduces the variability of estimates and corrects, to some extent, for CPS undercoverage. The CPS sample weights are adjusted to ensure that sample-based estimates of population match independent population controls. Three sets of controls are used:
      1. 51 state controls of the civilian noninstitutional population 16 years of age and older
      2. national civilian noninstitutional population controls for 14 hispanic and 5 nonhispanic age-sex categories
      3. National civilian noninstitutional population controls for 66 white, 42 black, and 10 "other" age-sex categories

        The independent population controls are prepared by projecting forward the resident population as enumerated on April 1, 1990. The projections are derived by updating demographic census data with information from a variety of other data sources that account for births, deaths, and net migration. Estimated numbers of resident Armed Forces personnel and institutionalized persons reduce the resident population to the civilian noninstitutional population. Estimates of net census undercount, determined from the Post Enumeration Survey, are added to the population projections. Prior to January 1994, the projections were based on earlier censuses, and there was no correction for census undercount. A summary of the current procedures used to make population projections is given in "Revisions in the Current Population Survey Effective January 1994" in the February 1994 issue of Employment and Earnings.

Comparability of CPS From Microdata Files With Published Sources

Although total estimates of the population will equal publishedestimates, labor force estimates produced from a microdata file will not be directly comparable or identical with the published nonseasonally adjusted labor force data. The major reason for this is due to a final estimation procedure incorporated into the production of the published nonseasonally adjusted data. This procedure, known as a composite estimator, is a weighted average of two estimates for the current month for any particular item. The first estimate is the two-stage ratio estimate that includes all the estimation steps given above. The second estimate consists of the composite estimate for the preceding month to which has been added an estimate of the change from the preceding month, based on that part of the sample which is common to the two months (about 75 percent). This procedure is primarily used to increase the reliability of estimates of month-to-month change, although other reliability gains are also realized. As noted above, the composite estimation procedure does not affect estimates of the total population.

Another factor also inhibits microdata comparison with published labor force data. This is the seasonal adjustment that is applied to many published statistics. This adjustment is used to adjust for normal seasonal variations to help distinguish the underlying economic situation in month-to-month changes.

Shown below are data from January and July 1993 which demonstrate how estimates compiled using the final weights from the microdata file may differ from the published composited estimates, with and without seasonal adjustment. Note that the composite estimation procedure was not used for estimates published from January 1994 to May 1994. For a further description of both the composite estimator and seasonal adjustment, see "Explanatory Notes and Estimates of Error: Household Data - Estimating Methods (Composite Estimation Procedure)" and "Seasonal Adjustment" in any issue of Employment and Earnings.

Attachment 3 - Overview - February 1998: Displaced Worker and Employee Tenure Supplement File

General

Census Bureau staff conducted the February 1998 Displaced Worker and Employee Tenure Survey as a supplement to that month's Current Population Survey (CPS). The CPS is a monthly labor force survey in which interviews are conducted in approximately 48,000 households across the country. Attachment 9 is a copy of the February 1998 Displaced Worker and Employee Tenure questionnaire.

Attachment 2 comprises a description of the CPS entitled "Overview--Current Population Survey." A description of the February 1998 Displaced Workers and Employee Tenure Survey follows.

Data Collection

Census Bureau staff conducted interviews during the period of February 15-21, 1998. This was a proxy response supplement; that is, a single respondent could provide answers for all eligible household members, provided the respondent him/herself was a household member 15 years of age or older.

All persons eligible for the labor force items were also eligible for the supplement. Persons 20 years of age and older, who lost or left a job in the last three years for selected reasons, were eligible for the first part of the supplement, which consists of the displaced workers items (SD1-SD27, including earnings items SLE1-SLE22 and SCE1-SCE25). Employed persons 15 years of age and older were eligible for the second part of the supplement, which consisted of the employee tenure items (ST1-ST5).

Interviewers received a 2-hour self-study that contained exercises on the basic labor force questions, item-by-item instructions for the supplement, supplement exercises, and practice interviews.

Data Processing

The data processing involved a consistency edit of all supplement items. The consistency edit mainly ensured that the entries within an individual record followed the correct skip patterns; items with off-path entries were blanked whenever appropriate.

The data processing also involved the full allocation, by demographic characteristics, of missing earnings data.

There are two supplement weights associated with the February 1998 Displaced Worker and Employee Tenure supplement. The first weight, PWSUPWGT, should be used to tally the displaced worker items. The second weight, PWTENWGT, should be used for tallying the employee tenure section of the supplement. Use the correct supplement weight for tallying the supplement items.

The values and universe for each variable are defined in the supplement record layout found in Attachment 8.

February 1998 Displaced Worker and Employee Tenure Computer File

CPS Labor Force Data The February 1998 CPS file contains 134,413 records. The first 856 characters contain the labor force data for each record. Attachment 7 contains the CPS Basic Items Record Layout,which includes the variable name, character size, location on record, universe, and the values of each basic CPS variable included on the file.

The variable PRPERTYP (located in positions 161-162 on the CPS Basic Items Record Layout) determines the type of person as follows:

PRPERTYP

1 = Child household member (0-14 years old)

2 = Adult civilian household member (15+ years old)

3 = Adult Armed Forces member (15+ years old)

The variable HRINTSTA (located in positions 57-58 on the CPS Basic Items Record Layout) determines the interview status of the household.

HRINTSTA

1 = Interview

2 = Type A Noninterview (These records represent households that were eligible for the February 1998 CPS interview but were not interviewed because no one was home, household members were temporarily absent, etc.)

3 = Type B Noninterview (These records represent sample addresses determined to be ineligible for the CPS by virtue of being vacant, demolished, nonresidential, etc.)

4 = Type C Noninterview (See explanation for Type B above.)

By combining the values of PRPERTYP (1-3) and HRINTSTA (2-4), the number of records can be determined.

Values of PRPERTYP
  Unweighted Counts
1 = Child 27,213
2 = Adult civilian, 15+ 93,509
3 = Adult, Armed Forces 390
The values of HRINTSTA are:  
2 = Type A Noninterview 3,799
3 = Type B Noninterview 9,096
4 = Type C Noninterview 406

February 1998 CPS/Displaced Worker and Employee Tenure Supplement File The February supplement data are in locations 857-1053. (See Attachment 8.)

Tallying the February 1998 Displaced Worker and Employee Tenure Supplement File The February 1998 supplement contains two distinct universes. The first universe comprises all persons 20 years of age and older who had been displaced from a job in the past three years. The second universe consists of each household member 15 years of age and older who was employed during reference week.

The variable PRSUPSAT (located in positions 1020-1021 on the supplement record layout) determines the supplement interview status of each person for the displaced workers part of the supplement. PRTENSAT (located in positions 1032-1033) determines the supplement interview status for each person eligible for the employee tenure portion of the supplement:

PRSUPSAT

1 = Not Eligible for Displaced Worker Items
2 = Interview - Displaced Worker Supplement
3 = Noninterview - Eligible for Displaced Workers Items, but not Interviewed

PRTENSAT

1 = Not Eligible for Job Tenure and Occupational Mobility Items
2 = Interview - Job Tenure and Occupational Mobility Supplement
3 = Noninterview - Eligible for Job Tenure and Occupational Mobility Items, but not Interviewed

Unweighted Counts Attachment 14 is a tally listing of unweighted counts from selected supplement items. Use these totals to ensure that the file is being accessed properly.

Attachment 4 - Glossary

Age
Age classification is based on the age of the person at his/her last birthday. The adult universe (i.e., population of marriageable age) is comprised of persons 15 years and over for CPS labor force data.
Allocation Flag
Each edited item has a corresponding allocation flag indicating the nature of the edit. See the attachment on allocation flags for more information. The second character of the item name is always "X".
Armed Forces
Demographic information for Armed Forces members (enumerated in off-base housing or on-base with their families) is included on the CPS data files. No labor force information is collected of Armed Forces members in any month. In March, supplemental data on income are included for Armed Forces members. This is the only month that non-demographic information is included for Armed Forces members.
Civilian Labor Force
(See Labor Force.)
Class of Worker
This refers to the broad classification of the person's employer. These broad classifications for current jobs are:
  1. Federal government
  2. State government
  3. Local government
  4. Private industry (including self-employed, incorporated)
  5. Self-employed (not incorporated)
  6. Working without pay
Domain
The domain for an item is a list or range of its possible values. Note that all unedited items have possible values of -1 (blank), -2 (don't know), and -3 (refused). Since all items have these possible values, they are not shown as valid entries for each item.
Duration of Unemployment
Duration of unemployment represents the length of time (through the current survey week) during which persons classified as unemployed are continuously looking for work. For persons on layoff, duration of unemployment represents the number of full weeks since the termination of their most recent employment. A period of two weeks or more during which a person is employed or ceased looking for work is considered to break the continuity of the present period of seeking work.
Earners, Number of
The file includes all persons 15 years old and over in the household with $1 or more in wages and salaries, or $1 or more of a loss in net income from farm or nonfarm self-employment during the preceding year.
Edited item
An edited item is allocated or imputed by the processing system. In most cases this means allocating a value where the unedited item contains a value of blank, "don't know", or "refused". The second character of the item name is always "E".
An edited version of an item exists only if that item is processed through the edits. If the edits never deal with a particular item, then that item only has an unedited version.
Since the instrument enforces skip patterns and consistency between many items, the edits are left mainly with the job of allocating missing values. Also, since an interviewer is allowed to "back up" in the interview, there may be "off-path" items filled in the unedited data. The edits also blank these off-path items if an edited version of the items exists.
Education
(See Level of School Completed.)
Employed
(See Labor Force.)
Family
A family is a group of two persons or more (one of whom is the householder) residing together and related by birth, marriage, or adoption. All such persons (including related subfamily members) are considered as members of one family. Beginning with the 1980 CPS, unrelated subfamilies (referred to in the past as secondary families) are no longer included in the count of families, nor are the members of unrelated subfamilies included in the count of family members.
Family Household
A family household is a household maintained by a family (as defined above), and may include among the household members any unrelated persons (unrelated subfamily members and/or secondary individuals) who may be residing there. The number of family households is equal to the number of families. The count of family household members differs from the count of family members, however, in that the family household members include all persons living in the household, whereas family members include only the householder and his/her relatives. (See the definition of Family).
Family Weight
This weight is used only for tallying family characteristics. In March, the weight on the family record is the March supplement weight of the householder or reference person.
Final Weight
Used in tabulating labor force items in all months, including March. The final weight is controlled to independent estimates for:
  1. States
  2. Origin, Sex, and Age
  3. Age, Race, and Sex
This weight should not be used when tabulating March supplement data.
Full-Time Worker
Persons on full-time schedules include persons working 35 hours or more, persons who worked 1-34 hours for noneconomic reasons (e.g., illness) and usually work full-time, and persons "with a job but not at work" who usually work full-time.
Group Quarters
Group quarters are noninstitutional living arrangements for groups not living in conventional housing units or groups living in housing units containing nine or more persons unrelated to the person in charge.
Head Versus Householder
Beginning with the March 1980 CPS, the Bureau of the Census discontinued the use of the terms "head of household" and "head of family." Instead, the terms "householder" and "family householder" are used.
Highest Grade of School Attended
(See Level of School Completed.)
Hispanic Origin
Persons of Hispanic origin in this file are determined on the basis of a question that asked for self-identification of the person's origin or descent. Respondents are asked to select their origin (or the origin of some other household member) from a "flash card" listing ethnic origins. Persons of Hispanic origin, in particular, are those who indicated that their origin was Mexican-American, Chicano, Mexican, Mexicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Hispanic.
Hours of Work
Hours of work statistics relate to the actual number of hours worked during the survey week. For example, a person who normally works 40 hours a week but who is off on the Veterans Day holiday is reported as working 32 hours even though he is paid for the holiday.
For persons working in more than one job, the figures related to the number of hours worked in all jobs during the week. However, all the hours are credited to the major job.
Household
A household consists of all the persons who occupy a house, an apartment, or other group of rooms, or a room, which constitutes a housing unit. A group of rooms or a single room is regarded as a housing unit when it is occupied as separate living quarters; that is, when the occupants do not live and eat with any other person in the structure, and when there is direct access from the outside or through a common hall. The count of households excludes persons living in group quarters, such as rooming houses, military barracks, and institutions. Inmates of institutions (mental hospitals, rest homes, correctional institutions, etc.) are not included in the survey.
Household Weight
The household weight is used for tallying household characteristics. In March, the household weight is the March Supplement weight of the householder.
Householder
The householder refers to the person (or one of the persons) in whose name the housing unit is owned or rented (maintained) or, if there is no such person, any adult member, excluding roomers, boarders, or paid employees. If the house is owned or rented jointly by a married couple, the householder may be either the husband or the wife. The person designated as the householder is the "reference person" to whom the relationship of all other household members, if any, is recorded.
Householder With No Other Relatives in Household
A householder who has no relatives living in the household. This is the entry for a person living alone. Another example is the designated householder of an apartment shared by two or more unrelated individuals.
Householder With Other Relatives (Including Spouse) in Household
The person designated as householder if he/she has one or more relatives (including spouse) living in the household.
Industry, Occupation, and Class of Worker (I&O)
Current Job (basic data) For the employed, current job is the job held in the reference week (the week before the survey). Persons with two or more jobs are classified in the job at which they worked the most hours during the reference week. The unemployed are classified according to their latest full-time job lasting two or more weeks or by the job (either full-time or part-time). The I & O questions are also asked of persons not in the labor force who are in the fourth and eighth months in sample and who have worked in the last five years.
Job Seekers
All unemployed persons who made specific efforts to find a job sometime during the 4-week period preceding the survey week.
Longitudinal Weight
Used for gross flows analysis. Only found on adult records matched from month to month.
PEMLR (Major Labor Force Recode)
This classification is available for each civilian 15 years old and over according to his/her responses to the monthly (basic) labor force items.
Labor Force
Persons are classified as in the labor force if they are employed, unemployed, or in the Armed Forces during the survey week.
The "civilian labor force" includes all civilians classified as employed or unemployed. The file includes labor force data for civilians age 15 and over. However, the official definition of the civilian labor force is age 16 and over.
  1. Employed

    Employed persons comprise (1) all civilians who, during the survey week, do any work at all as paid employees or in their own business or profession, or on their own farm, or who work 15 hours or more as unpaid workers on a farm in a business operated by a member of the family; and (2) all those who have jobs but who are not working because of illness, bad weather, vacation, or labor-management dispute, or because they are taking time off for personal reasons, whether or not they are seeking other jobs.

    These persons would have a Monthly Labor Force Recode (MLR) of 1 or 2 respectively in characters 180-181 of the person record which designates "at work" and "with a job, but not at work." Each employed person is counted only once. Those persons who held more than one job are counted in the job at which they worked the greatest number of hours during the survey week. If they worked an equal number of hours at more than one job, they are counted at the job they held the longest.

  2. Unemployed

    Unemployed persons are those civilians who, during the survey week, have no employment but are available for work, and (1) have engaged in any specific job seeking activity within the past 4 weeks such as registering at a public or private employment office, meeting with prospective employers, checking with friends or relatives, placing or answering advertisements, writing letters of application, or being on a union or professional register; (2) are waiting to be called back to a job from which they had been laid off; or (3) are waiting to report to a new wage or salary job within 30 days. These persons would have an MLR code of 3 or 4 in characters 180-181 of the person record. The unemployed includes job leavers, job losers, new job entrants, and job reentrants.

    1. Job Leavers - Persons who quit or otherwise terminate their employment voluntarily and immediately begin looking for work.
    2. Job Losers - Persons whose employment ends involuntarily, who immediately begin looking for work, and those persons who are already on layoff.
    3. New Job Entrants - Persons who never worked at a full-time job lasting two weeks or longer.
    4. Job Reentrants - Persons who previously worked at a full-time job lasting two weeks or longer but are out of the labor force prior to beginning to look for work.

    Finally, it should be noted that the unemployment rate represents the number of persons unemployed as a percent of the civilian labor force 16 years old and over.

    This measure can also be computed for groups within the labor force classified by sex, age, marital status, race, etc. The job loser, job leaver, reentrant, and new entrant rates are each calculated as a percent of the civilian labor force 16 years old and over; the sum of the rates for the four groups thus equals the total unemployment rate.

  3. Not in Labor Force

    All civilians 15 years old and over who are not classified as employed or unemployed. These persons are further classified by major activity: retired, unable to work because of long-term physical or mental illness, and other. The "other" group includes, for the most part, students and persons keeping house. Persons who report doing unpaid work in a family farm or business for less than 15 hours are also classified as not in the labor force.

    For persons not in the labor force, data on previous work experience, intentions to seek work again, desire for a job at the time of interview, and reasons for not looking for work are asked only in those households that are in the fourth and eighth months of the sample, i.e., the "outgoing" groups, those which had been in the sample for three previous months and would not be in for the subsequent month.

    Persons classified as NILF have an MLR code of 5-7 in characters 180-181 of the person record.

Layoff
A person who is unemployed but expects to be called back to a specific job. If he/she expects to be called back within 30 days, it is considered a temporary layoff; otherwise, it is an indefinite layoff.
Level of School Completed/Degree Received
These data changed beginning with the January 1992 file. A new question, "What is the highest level of school ... has completed or the highest degree ... has received?" replaced the old "Highest grade attended" and "Year completed" questions. The new question provides more accurate data on the degree status of college students. Educational attainment applies only to progress in "regular" school. Such schools include graded public, private, and parochial elementary and high schools (both junior and senior high), colleges, universities, and professional schools, whether day schools or night schools. Thus, regular schooling is that which may advance a person toward an elementary school certificate or high school diploma, or a college, university, or professional school degree. Schooling in other than regular schools is counted only if the credits obtained are regarded as transferable to a school in the regular school system.
Looking for Work
A person who is trying to get work or trying to establish a business or profession.
Marital Status
The marital status classification identifies four major categories: single (never married), married, widowed, and divorced. These terms refer to the marital status at the time of enumeration.
The category "married" is further divided into "married, civilian spouse present," "married, Armed Force spouse present," "married, spouse absent," "married, Armed Force spouse absent," and "separated." A person is classified as "married, spouse present" if the husband or wife is reported as a member of the household even though he or she may be temporarily absent on business or on vacation, visiting, in a hospital, etc., at the time of the enumeration. Persons reported as "separated" included those with legal separations, those living apart with intentions of obtaining a divorce, and other persons permanently or temporarily estranged from their spouses because of marital discord.
For the purpose of this file, the group "other marital status" includes "widowed and divorced," "separated," and "other married, spouse absent."
Month-In-Sample
The term is defined as the number of times a unit is interviewed. Each unit is interviewed eight times during the life of the sample.
Never Worked
A person who has never held a full-time civilian job lasting two consecutive weeks or more.
Nonfamily Householder
A nonfamily householder (formerly called a primary individual) is a person maintaining a household while living alone or with nonrelatives only.
Nonworker
A person who does not do any work in the calendar year preceding the survey.
Nonrelative of Householder With No Own Relatives in Household
A nonrelative of the householder who has no relative(s) of his own in the household. This category includes such nonrelatives as a foster child, a ward, a lodger, a servant, or a hired hand, who has no relatives of his own living with him in the household.
Nonrelative of Householder With Own Relatives (Including Spouse)in Household
Any household member who is not related to the householder but has relatives of his own in the household; for example, a lodger, his spouse, and their son.
Other Relative of Householder
Any relative of the householder other than his spouse or child; for example, father, mother, grandson, daughter-in-law, etc.
Out Variable
An instrument-created item that stores the results of another item.
Own Child
A child related by birth, marriage, or adoption to the family householder.
Part-Time, Economic Reasons
The item includes slack work, material shortages, repairs to plant or equipment, start or termination of job during the week, and inability to find full-time work. (See also Full-Time Worker.)
Part-Time, Other Reasons
The item includes labor dispute, bad weather, own illness, vacation, demands of home housework, school, no desire for full-time work, and full-time worker only during peak season.
Part-Time Work
Persons who work between 1 and 34 hours are designated as working "part-time" in the current job held during the reference week. For the March supplement, a person is classified as having worked part-time during the preceding calendar year if he worked less than 35 hours per week in a majority of the weeks in which he worked during the year. Conversely, he is classified as having worked full-time if he worked 35 hours or more per week during a majority of the weeks in which he worked.
Part-Year Work
Part-year work is classified as less than 50 weeks' work.
Population Coverage
Population coverage includes the civilian population of the United States plus approximately 820,000 members of the Armed Forces in the United States living off post or with their families on post but excludes all other members of the Armed Forces. This file excludes inmates of institutions. The labor force and work experience data are not collected for Armed Forces members.
Processing Recode
An item calculated by the processing system from a combination of other items in the database. The second character of the item name is always "R".
Race
The population is divided into three groups on the basis of race: White, Black, and Other races. The last category includes Indians, Japanese, Chinese, and any other race except White and Black. In most of the published tables, "Other Races" are shown in total population.
Reentrants
Persons who previously worked at a full-time job lasting two weeks or longer but who are out of the labor force prior to beginning to look for work.
Related Children
Related children in a family include own children and all other children in the household who are related to the householder by birth, marriage, or adoption. For each type of family unit identified in the CPS, the count of own children under 18 years old is limited to single (never married) children; however, "own children under 25" and "own children of any age," include all children regardless of marital status. The totals include never-married children living away from home in college dormitories.
Related Subfamily
A related subfamily is a married couple with or without children, or one parent with one or more own single (never married) children under 18 years old, living in a household and related to, but not including, the householder or spouse. The most common example of a related subfamily is a young married couple sharing the home of the husband's or wife's parents. The number of related subfamilies is not included in the number of families.
School
A person who spent most of his time during the survey week attending any kind of public or private school, including trade or vocational schools in which students receive no compensation in money or kind.
Secondary Individual
A secondary individual is a person in a household or group quarters such as a guest, roomer, boarder, or resident employee (excluding nonfamily households and inmates of institutions) who is not related to any other person in the household or group quarters.
Self-Employed
Self-employed persons are those who work for profit or fees in their own business, profession or trade, or operate a farm.
Stretches of Unemployment
A continuous stretch is one that is not interrupted by the person getting a job or leaving the labor market to go to school, to keep house, etc. A period of two weeks or more during which a person is employed or ceased looking for work is considered to break the continuity of the period of seeking work.
Unable to Work
A person is classified as unable to work because of long-term physical or mental illness, lasting six months or longer.
Unedited item
An item that is produced by the CAPI instrument, either collected during the interview or created by the CAPI instrument. The second character of the item name is always "U".
Unemployed
(See Labor Force.)
Unpaid Family Workers
Unpaid family workers are persons working without pay for 15 hours a week or more on a farm or in a business operated by a member of the household to whom they are related by birth or marriage.
Unrelated Individuals
Unrelated individuals are persons of any age (other than inmates of institutions) who are not living with any relatives. An unrelated individual may be (1) a nonfamily householder living alone or with nonrelatives only, (2) a roomer, boarder, or resident employee with no relatives in the household, or (3) a group quarters member who has no relatives living with him/her. Thus, a widow who occupies her house alone or with one or more other persons not related to her, a roomer not related to anyone else in the housing unit, a maid living as a member of her employer's household but with no relatives in the household, and a resident staff member in a hospital living apart from any relatives are all examples of unrelated individuals.
Unrelated Subfamily
An unrelated subfamily is a family that does not include among its members the householder and relatives of the householder. Members of unrelated subfamilies may include persons such as guests, roomers, boarders, or resident employees and their relatives living in a household. The number of unrelated subfamily members is included in the number of household members but is not included in the count of family members.
Persons living with relatives in group quarters were formerly considered as members of families. However, the number of such unrelated subfamilies became so small (37,000 in 1967) that beginning with the data for 1968 (and beginning with the census data for 1960) the Bureau of the Census includes persons in these unrelated subfamilies in the count of secondary individuals.
Veteran Status
If a male served at any time during the four major wars of this century, the code for the most recent wartime service is entered. The following codes are used:
0 Children under 15
1 Vietnam era
2 Korean
3 WWI
4 WWII
5 Other Service
6 Nonveteran
Wage and Salary Workers
Wage and salary workers receive wages, salary, commission, tips, or pay in kind from a private employer or from a governmental unit. Also included are persons who are self-employed in an incorporated business.
Workers
(See Labor Force--Employed.)
Work Experience
Includes those persons who during the preceding calendar year did any work for pay or profit or worked without pay on a family-operated farm or business at any time during the year, on a part-time or full-time basis.
Year-Round Full-Time Worker
A year-round full-time worker is one who usually worked 35 hours or more per week for 50 weeks or more during the preceding calendar year.

Attachment 5 - How to Use the Record Layout

Data users familiar with the CPS data files in prior years will see many similarities between the format of this file and those files released before January 1994. As in the past, there are numeric locations on the file which correspond to each variable. There is only one record layout which contains the variables for children, adults, and armed forces members. In prior years, each type of person had a separate record layout.

Item Naming Conventions

  • The first character of each variable name is one of the following:

H - Household item
G - Geography item
*P - Person item (includes adult items, child items, and armed forces items)

* There is no need to distinguish adult, child, and armed forces items in the variable names in the new system. The recode PRPERTYP (located in positions 161-162) tells you what category the person is in.

  • The second character of each variable name is one of the following:

E - Edited item
U - Unedited item
X - Allocation flag (see Attachment 16 for more information)
W - Weight
R - Recode

  • The remaining characters describe the variable.

    For multiple entry items, the file contains a separate variable for each possible response. Each item has the same descriptive name but a number is added as the last digit. For example, Question 22A allows separate entries for up to 6 job search methods. The item names are PELKM1 (this item is edited), PULKM2, (this item is unedited), PULKM3, etc. These items are located in positions 296-307 of the record layout.

Attachment 6 - Changes to CPS Supplement Files Effective September 1995

Effective September 1995, a number of revisions were made to the CPS public use files. Most were related to the recent phase-in of a new sample based on the results of the 1990 Census. This phase-in was completed in June 1995. Part of this changeover was the use of new metropolitan area definitions based on the results of the 1990 Decennial Census in selecting the new sample. As such, beginning in September 1995, metropolitan area definitions effective June 30, 1993 will be identified subject to confidentiality restrictions on the CPS public use files. The new variables and their locations are given below.

Concurrent with this revision, several other changes were made to the CPS public use files. The most important of these was the creation of a new set of household identification numbers for the September forward files. Bureau of the Census confidentiality restrictions require that we preclude the possibility of matching any households from data files before and after the September 1995 date. In conjunction with this, the Bureau revised its sample household numbering scheme. These two considerations resulted in the creation of a 15 character household identification number. The location of this number is now in characters 1-15 (previously 1-12) of all non-March files and characters 344-358 (previously 320-331) on the March files.

Also, on non-March files, the following variables changed locations

Name Old Location New Location
HUINTTYP 12-14 16-17
HULENSEC 15-19 109-113

The other change involves the suppression of several 3-digit occupation codes. Specifically, Codes 003 and 016 (legislators and postmasters, respectively) are collapsed into Code 022, (managers and administrators, N.E.C.) Also, Code 179, (judges) was collapsed into Code 178, (lawyers). None of the changes affected any of the occupation recodes.

Attachment 12 - Specific Metropolitan Identifiers

Examples of the proper coding of specific metropolitan areas List 1: CMSA Codes (GECMSA) List 2: PMSA's within CMSA's List 3: FIPS MSA/PMSA CODES (GEMSA) List 4: Central City Codes (GEINDVCC) List 5: County Code List (GECO)

The specific metropolitan identifiers on this file are based on the Office of Management and Budget's June 30, 1993 definitions. MSA's and PMSA's can be identified by using the FIPS MSA/PMSA code (List 3). Identification of individual central cities is based on a combination of codes (List 2). Individual central cities are identified by the appropriate central city code and the FIPS MSA/PMSA code. Some examples of the proper coding of specific metropolitan areas are given below.

Phoenix, AZ MSA N/C 6200 N/C
Mesa, AZ Central City 2 6200 N/C
Burlington, VT MSA N/C 1305 N/C

N/C = No Code Required

NOTE:

Many of the smaller metropolitan areas in sample do not contain central city/balance breakdowns and hence, are coded "not identifiable" in the household metropolitan statistical area residence status code (GEMSAST). It is recommended that this code in conjunction with the modified household metropolitan statistical area residence status code (GEMETSTA) be used for tallying metropolitan residence status for national and other grouped data. The GE in each variable name refers to Household Geographic.

Attachment 17 - Source and Accuracy of Estimates of the February 1998: Displaced Worker and Employee Tenure Supplement File Data

SOURCE OF DATA

The data for this microdata file come from the February 1998 Current Population Survey (CPS). This month's survey uses two sets of questions, the basic CPS and the supplement. The Bureau of the Census conducts the basic CPS every month and asks supplementary questions during certain months.

Basic CPS. The basic CPS collects primarily labor force data about the civilian noninstitutional population. Interviewers ask questions concerning labor force participation about each member 15 years old and over in every sample household.

February 1998 supplement. In addition to the basic CPS questions, interviewers asked supplementary questions on displaced workers, job tenure, and occupational mobility.

Sample Design. The present CPS sample was selected from the 1990 Decennial Census files with coverage in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The sample is continually updated to account for new residential construction. The United States was divided into 2,007 geographic areas. In most states, a geographic area consisted of a county or several contiguous counties. In some areas of New England and Hawaii, minor civil divisions are used instead of counties. A total of 754 geographic areas was selected for sample. About 50,000 occupied households are eligible for interview every month. Interviewers are unable to obtain interviews at about 3,200 of these units. This occurs when the occupants are not found at home after repeated calls or are unavailable for some other reason.

Since the introduction of the CPS, the Bureau of the Census has redesigned the CPS sample several times. These redesigns have improved the quality and accuracy of the data and have satisfied changing data needs. The most recent changes were completely implemented in July 1995.

Estimation procedure. This survey's estimation procedure inflates weighted sample results to independent estimates of the civilian noninstitutional population of the United States by state, age, sex, race, Hispanic/-Hispanic origin, and state of residence. This adjustment is called the poststratification ratio estimate. The independent estimates are calculated based on information from four primary sources:

  • The 1990 Decennial Census of Population and Housing.
  • An adjustment for undercoverage in the 1990 census.
  • Statistics on births, deaths, immigration, and emigration.
  • Statistics on the size of the Armed Forces.

The independent population estimates include some, but not all, undocumented immigrants.

ACCURACY OF THE ESTIMATES

Since the CPS estimates come from a sample, they may differ from figures from a complete census using the same questionnaires, instructions, and enumerators. A sample survey estimate has two possible types of error: sampling and nonsampling. The accuracy of an estimate depends on both types of error, but the full extent of the nonsampling error is unknown. Consequently, one should be particularly careful when interpreting results based on a relatively small number of cases or on small differences between estimates. The standard errors for CPS estimates primarily indicate the magnitude of sampling error. They also partially measure the effect of some nonsampling errors in responses and enumeration, but do not measure systematic biases in the data. (Bias is the average over all possible samples of the differences between the sample estimates and the desired value.)

Nonsampling variability. There are several sources of nonsampling errors including the following:

  • Inability to obtain information about all cases in the sample.
  • Definitional difficulties.
  • Differences in the interpretation of questions.
  • Respondents' inability or unwillingness to provide correct information.
  • Respondents' inability to recall information.
  • Errors made in data collection such as recording and coding data.
  • Errors made in processing the data.
  • Errors made in estimating values for missing data.
  • Failure to represent all units with the sample (undercoverage).

For the February 1998 basic CPS, the nonresponse rate was 7.4%; for the supplement the nonresponse rate was an additional 4.7% for a total supplement nonresponse rate of 11.8%.

CPS undercoverage results from missed housing units and missed persons within sample households. Overall CPS undercoverage is estimated to be about 8 percent. CPS undercoverage varies with age, sex, and race. Generally, undercoverage is larger for males than for females and larger for Blacks and other races combined than for Whites. As described previously, ratio estimation to independent age-sex-race-Hispanic population controls partially corrects for bias due to undercoverage. However, biases exist in the estimates to the extent that missed persons in missed households or missed persons in interviewed households have different characteristics from those of interviewed persons in the same age-sex-race-origin-state group.

A common measure of survey coverage is the coverage ratio, the estimated population before poststratification divided by the independent population control. table A shows CPS coverage ratios for age-sex-race groups for a typical month. The CPS coverage ratios can exhibit some variability from month to month. Other Census Bureau household surveys experience similar coverage.

For additional information on nonsampling error including the possible impact on CPS data when known, refer to Statistical Policy Working Paper 3, An Error Profile: Employment as Measured by the Current Population Survey, Office of Federal Statistical Policy and Standards, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1978 and Technical Paper 40, The Current Population Survey: Design and Methodology, Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Commerce.

Comparability of data. Data obtained from the CPS and other sources are not entirely comparable. This results from differences in interviewer training and experience and in differing survey processes. This is an example of nonsampling variability not reflected in the standard errors. Use caution when comparing results from different sources.

A number of changes were made in data collection and estimation procedures beginning with the January 1994 CPS. The major change was the use of a new questionnaire. The questionnaire was redesigned to measure the official labor force concepts more precisely, to expand the amount of data available, to implement several definitional changes, and to adapt to a computer-assisted interviewing environment. The supplemental questions were also modified for adaptation to computer-assisted interviewing, although there were no changes in definitions and concepts. Due to these and other changes, one should use caution when comparing estimates from data collected in 1994 with estimates from earlier years.

Caution should also be used when comparing estimates obtained from this microdata file (which reflects 1990 census-based population controls) with estimates for 1993 and earlier years (which reflect 1980 census-based population controls). This change in population controls had relatively little impact on summary measures such as means, medians, and percentage distributions. It did have a significant impact on levels. For example, use of 1990 based population controls results in about a 1-percent increase in the civilian noninstitutional population and in the number of families and households. Thus, estimates of levels for data collected in 1994 and later years will differ from those for earlier years by more than what could be attributed to actual changes in the population. These differences could be disproportionately greater for certain subpopulation groups than for the total population.

Since no independent population control totals for persons of Hispanic origin were used before 1985, compare Hispanic estimates over time cautiously.

Based on the results of each decennial census, the Bureau of the Census gradually introduces a new sample design for the CPS. During this phase-in period, CPS data are collected form sample designs based on different censuses. While most CPS estimates have been unaffected by this mixed sample, geographic estimates are subject to greater error and variability. Users should exercise caution when comparing estimates across years for metropolitan/ nonmetropolitan categories.

For more information on the introduction of the new questionnaire, the modernized data collection methods, and the introduction of new population controls based on the 1990 census, see "Revisions in the Current Population Survey Effective January 1994" in the February 1994 issue of Employment and Earnings published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Note when using small estimates. Because of the large standard errors involved, summary measures (such as medians and percent distributions) probably do not reveal useful information when computed on a base smaller than 75,000. Take care in the interpretation of small differences. For instance, even a small amount of nonsampling error can cause a borderline difference to appear significant or not, thus distorting a seemingly valid hypothesis test.

Sampling variability. Sampling variability is variation that occurred by chance because a sample was surveyed rather than the entire population. Standard errors, as calculated below, are primarily measures of sampling variability, but they may include some nonsampling error.

Standard errors and their use. A number of approximations are required to derive, at a moderate cost, standard errors applicable to estimates from this microdata file. Instead of providing an individual standard error for each estimate, two parameters, a and b, are provided to calculate standard errors for each type of characteristic. These parameters are in table B.

The sample estimate and its standard error enable one to construct a confidence interval. A confidence interval is a range that would include the average result of all possible samples with a known probabilityamples were surveyed under essentially the same general conditions and using the same sample design, and if an estimate and its standard error were calculated from each sample, then approximately 90 percent of the intervals from 1.645 standard errors below the estimate to 1.645 standard errors above the estimate would include the average result of all possible samples.

A particular confidence interval may or may not contain the average estimate derived from all possible samples. However, one can say with specified confidence that the interval includes the average estimate calculated from all possible samples.

Standard errors may also be used to perform hypothesis testing. This is a procedure for distinguishing between population parameters using sample estimates. One common type of hypothesis is that two population parameters are different. An example of this would be comparing males who left a job involuntarily to females who left a job involuntarily.

Tests may be performed at various levels of significance. A significance level is the probability of concluding that the characteristics are different when, in fact, they are the same. To conclude that two parameters are different at the 0.10 level of significance, for example, the absolute value of the estimated difference between characteristics must be greater than or equal to 1.645 times the standard error of the difference.

The Census Bureau uses 90-percent confidence intervals and 0.10 levels of significance to determine statistical validity. Consult standard statistical textbooks for alternative criteria.

For information on calculating standard errors for labor force data from the CPS which involve quarterly or yearly averages, changes in consecutive quarterly or yearly averages, consecutive month-to-month changes in estimates, and consecutive year-to-year changes in monthly estimates, see "Explanatory Notes and Estimates of Error: Household Data" in the corresponding Employment and Earnings published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Standard errors of estimated numbers. The approximate standard error, sx, of an estimated number from this microdata file can be obtained using this formula:

s_x=√(〖ax〗^2+bx)

Formula (1)

Here x is the size of the estimate and a and b are the parameters in table B associated with the particular type of characteristic. When calculating standard errors from cross-tabulations involving different characteristics, use the set of parameters for the characteristic which will give the largest standard error.

Illustration

Suppose there were 3,101,000 unemployed men in the civilian labor force. Use the appropriate parameters from table B and formula (1) to get

Number, x 3,101,000
a parameter -0.000018
b parameter 2,957
Standard error 95,000
90% conf. int. 52,945,000 to 3,257,000

The standard error is calculated as

s_x=√(-0.000018×〖3,101,000〗^2+2,957×3,101,000)=95,000

The 90- percent confidence interval is calculated as 3,101,000 + 1.645 x 95,000.

A conclusion that the average estimate derived from all possible samples lies within a range computed in this way would be correct for roughly 90 percent of all possible samples.

Standard errors of estimated percentages. The reliability of an estimated percentage, computed using sample data from both numerator and denominator, depends on both the size of the percentage and its base. Estimated percentages are relatively more reliable than the corresponding estimates of the numerators of the percentages, particularly if the percentages are 50 percent or more. When the numerator and denominator of the percentage are in different categories, use the parameter from table B indicated by the numerator.

The approximate standard error, sx,p, of an estimated percentage can be obtained by use of the formula

s_(x,p)=√((b⁄x)p(100-p) )

Formula (2)

Here x is the total number of persons, families, households, or unrelated individuals in the base of the percentage, p is the percentage (0 < p < 100), and b is the parameter in table B associated with the characteristic in the numerator of the percentage.

Illustration

Suppose of 7,952,000 displaced workers, 3,301,000 or 41.5 percent lost their jobs when a plant or company closed down or moved. Use the appropriate parameter from table B and formula (2) to get

Percentage, p 41.5
Base, x 7,952,000
b parameter 2,985
Standard error 1.0
90% conf. int. 39.9 to 43.1

The standard error is calculated as

s_(x,p)=√((2,985/7,952,000)×41.5×(100-41.5))=1.0

The 90 percent confidence interval of the percentage of displaced workers who lost their jobs when a plant or company closed down or moved is calculated as 41.5 + 1.645 x 0.7.

Standard error of a difference. The standard error of the difference between two sample estimates is approximately equal to

s_(x-y)=√(8_x^2+8_x^2 )

Formula (3)

where sx and sy are the standard errors of the estimates, x and y. The estimates can be numbers, percentages, ratios, etc. This will represent the actual standard error quite accurately for the difference between estimates of the same characteristic in two different areas, or for the difference between separate and uncorrelated characteristics in the same area. However, if there is a high positive (negative) correlation between the two characteristics, the formula will overestimate (underestimate) the true standard error.

Illustration

Suppose that of 6,342,000 employed men between 20-24 years of age, 227,000 or 3.6 percent were part-time workers, and of the 5,690,000 employed women between 20-24 years of age, 255,000 or 4.5 percent were part-time workers. Use the appropriate parameters from table B and formulas (2) and (3) to get

  x y difference
Percentage, p 3.6 4.5 0.9
Number, x 6,342,000 5,690,000 -
b parameter 2,764 2,530 -
Standard error 0.4 0.4 0.6
90% conf. int. 2.9 to 4.3 3.8 to 5.2 -0.1 TO 1.9

The standard error of the difference is calculated as

s_(x-y)=√(〖0.4〗^2+〖0.4〗^2 )=0.6

The 90-percent confidence interval around the difference is calculated as 0.9 + 1.645 x 0.6. Since this interval includes zero, we cannot conclude with 90-percent confidence that the percentage of part-time women workers between 20-24 years of age is greater than the percentage of part-time men workers between 20-24 years of age.

Standard Error of a Median. The sampling variability of an estimated median depends on the form of the distribution and the size of the base. One can approximate the reliability of an estimated median by determining a confidence interval about it. (See the section on standard errors and their use for a general discussion of confidence intervals.)

Estimate the 68-percent confidence limits of a median based on sample data using the following procedure.

  1. Determine, using formula (2), the standard error of the estimate of 50 percent from the distribution.

  2. Add to and subtract from 50 percent the standard error determined in step 1.

  3. Using the distribution of the characteristic, determine upper and lower limits of the 68- percent confidence interval by calculating values corresponding to the two points established in step 2.

    Use the following formula to calculate the upper and lower limits.

    x_pN=(pN- N_1)/(N_2-N_1 ) (A_2-A_1 )+A_1 Formula (4) where

    XpN = estimated upper and lower bounds for the confidence interval (0 < p < 1). For purposes of calculating the confidence interval, p takes on the values determined in step 2. Note that XpN estimates the median when p = 0.50.

    N = for distribution of numbers: the total number of units (persons, households, etc.) for the characteristic in the distribution.

    = for distribution of percentages: the value 1.0.

    p = the values obtained in step 2.

    A1, A2 = the lower and upper bounds, respectively, of the interval containing XpN.

    N1, N2 = for distribution of numbers: the estimated number of units (persons, households, etc.) with values of the characteristic greater than or equal to A1 and A2, respectively.

    = for distribution of percentages: the estimated percentage of units (persons, households, etc.) having values of the characteristic greater than or equal to A1 and A2, respectively.

  4. Divide the difference between the two points determined in step 3 by two to obtain the standard error of the median.

Illustration

Suppose that the estimated median years on the lost job for all displaced workers is four years and suppose the following table gives the distribution of years.

Years on Last Job Number of Persons
(in thousands)
Percent Distribution Cumulative Distribution
< 1 1,978 28.2 28.2
1 - 4 2,600 37.0 65.2
5 - 9 1,177 16.8 81.9
10 - 14 531 7.6 89.5
15 - 19 315 4.5 94.0
20+ 423 6.0 100.0
Total 7,024

(1) Using b = 2,985 from table B and formula (2), the standard error of 50 percent on a base of 7,024,000 is around 1.0 percent.

(2) To obtain a 68-percent confidence interval for a median, add to and subtract from 50 percent, the standard error found in step (1). This yields limits of 49.0 and 51.0 percent.

(3) It can be seen that 28.2 percent of the displaced workers had less than 1 year on their lost job, and 65.2 percent had less than 5 years on their lost job. By linear interpolation the lower and upper limits of the 68-percent confidence interval for the median are calculated as

Lower limit formula: 1+(5-1)  (49.0-28.2)/(65.2-28.2)=3.2 <br />
           Upper Limit formula: 1+(5-1)  (51.0-28.2)/(65.2-28.2)=3.5

(4) The standard error of the median is, therefore,

(3.5-3.2)/2=0.2
