I.   INTRODUCTION

       This public-use tape presents detailed income and expenditure data from the Interview
component of the ongoing Consumer Expenditure Survey. These data were published in 1983 in
Consumer Expenditure Survey: Interview Survey 1980-81, Bulletin 2225. Data from the Diary
component were published in 1983 in Consumer Expenditure Survey: Diary Survey, 1980-81, Bulletin
2173. Data for both components were collected during 1980 and 1981, the first two years of the ongoing
survey program. A list of publications containing data from the survey is shown at the end of this
documentation.

        The Consumer Expenditure Survey program provides a continuous and comprehensive flow of
data on the buying habits of American consumers. These data are used widely in economic research
and analysis, and in revisions of the Consumer Price Index. To meet the needs of users, BLS makes the
data available in news releases, bulletins, articles in the Monthly Labor Review, and public-use computer
tapes.

        Data on this tape are in the public domain and, with appropriate credit, may be reproduced
without permission (U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, "Consumer Expenditure
Survey," Interview Survey, 1980-81).


II. DESCRIPTION OF THE SURVEY

        The Consumer Expenditure Survey (CEX) program consists of two separate components: 1) a
Quarterly Interview panel survey in which each consumer unit (CU) in the sample is interviewed every 3
months over five consecutive quarters, and 2) a Diary or record keeping survey completed by the sample
consumer units for two consecutive 1-week periods. Each component has its own questionnaire and
independent sample.

         The Quarterly Interview portion of the program is designed to collect data on major items of
expense which respondents can be expected to recall for 3 months or longer. Provisions are also made
to collect household characteristics and income data. Each consumer unit (See V. A. POPULATION for
the definition of a consumer unit.) in the sample is interviewed once per quarter for five consecutive
quarters. At BLS, each quarter of data is processed independently from other quarters. Thus the annual
estimates produced by BLS are not dependent on the participation of a consumer unit (CU) for the full
five quarters. All data collected in both surveys are subject to Census and BLS confidentiality
requirements which prevent the disclosure of any respondent's identity.

         The initial interview collects demographic and family characteristics data and an inventory of
major durable goods for each consumer unit. Expenditures are collected in this interview using a one-
month recall. They are used along with the inventory information to bound the expenditure responses for
subsequent interviews and to classify the unit for analysis. The bounding of expenditure responses
prevents duplicate reporting in subsequent interviews. Because the collected expenditures in this initial
interview are used for bounding purposes and not for expenditure estimates, these data are not placed
on the tape.

         The second through fifth interviews use uniform questionnaires to collect expenditure information
in each quarter. Income information, such as wage, salary, unemployment compensation, child support,
and alimony, as well as information on the employment of each household member, are collected in the
second and fifth interviews only. For new CU members and CU members who started work since the
previous interview, wage, salary, and other information on employment are collected in the third and
fourth interviews. If there is no new employment information, it is carried over from the second interview
to the third and fourth interviews. In the fifth interview, a supplement is used to collect information on
stock values and changes in balances of assets and liabilities.


                                                 - 4 -
         Each quarter, 20 percent of the sample are new households introduced for the first time. They
replace one-fifth of the sample that has completed its final interview in the previous quarter. This
rotating procedure is designed to improve data collection efficiency. Households which moved away
from their sample address between interviews are dropped from the survey. New households which
moved into the sample address are screened for eligibility and included in the survey. Students living in
college- or university-regulated housing report their own expenditures directly, while at school, rather
than being considered part of their parents' household.

        The Interview survey collects detailed data on an estimated 60 to 70 percent of total household
expenditures. In addition, global estimates are obtained for food and other selected items. These global
estimates account for an additional 20 to 25 percent of total expenditures. The Interview survey, by
nature, does not collect expenses for housekeeping supplies, personal care products, and
nonprescription drugs. Thus, only 90 to 95 percent of total expenditures are covered in the Interview
survey.

III. CHANGES FROM THE FORMER 1980-81 TAPE

        This public use tape has been redesigned to closely follow the format of the 1989 and 1990
tapes. This will enable comparisons of 1980-81 with the 1989 and 1990 tapes and more recent tapes.
The following represents changes from the former 1980-81 tape. Also listed are differences from this
tape and the 1989 and 1990 tapes.

1)      The 1989 and 1990 topcoding method is used on this tape to allow for useful longitudinal
        comparisons. Although it should be noted that in the following cases the critical values for both
        years differ. (see Section VIII for a detailed description of the topcoding rules).

        FMLY and MEMB

        FMLY and MEMB income variables:
              The previous 1980-81 tape topcoded income at $75,000, i.e., total income that exceeded
              $75,000 was set equal to $75,000. Components of income were suppressed if total
              income was topcoded.

                The current 1980-81 tape topcodes components of income at $75,000, i.e., components
                that exceed $75,000. The sum of the income components equal total income, which
                may now exceed $75,000.

        Other FMLY variables:
               PROPVALX is topcoded at $200,000
               RENTEQVX is topcoded at $1,000

        MTAB:
                MTAB UCC's were topcoded with the 1989 and 1990 rules and critical values, except in
                the following two cases:
                         790930 200,000/3
                         800721 200,000/12

        ITAB
                ITAB UCC's are topcoded with the 1989 and 1990 rules but the critical value is equal to
                $75,000/12; i.e., components of income are topcoded.

                As in the original 1980-81 tape, if UCC 800720 was greater than or equal to
                $200,000/12, the value was set to $200,000/12 and flagged.


                                                 - 5 -
2)   The following occupational and industry variables have been recoded from three digit codes to
     two digit codes to match the variable coding in the 1989 and 1990 tape.

                     From the FMLY file:                  From the MEMB file:

                        POCC_REF                              OCCUCURR
                        QCURROC2                              OCCUPREV
                        QPREVOCC                              QCURRIND
                        QPREVOC2                              QCURROCC
                        QCURRIN1                              QPREVOCC
                        QCURRIN2
                        QPREVIN1
                        QPREVIN2

3)   JOTAXNET and MISCTAXX appear on the 1980-81 tape. JOTAXNET equals MISCTAXX less
     any Social Security contributions made by self-employed CU members. In the 1980 and 1981
     surveys, MISCTAXX was defined as "Other taxes paid in the past 12 months" inclusive of self-
     employed Social Security contributions. In the later years of the ongoing survey, including 1989
     and 1990, MISCTAXX was collected so that it did not include any Social Security contributions,
     and therefore the later definition of MISCTAXX matched the definition of JOTAXNET used in
     1980-81. Consequently, when comparing MISCTAXX from the 1989 and 1990 tapes with the
     1980-81 data, the user should use JOTAXNET.

4)   The 1980-81 MEMB variable RRRETIRX matches the 1989 and 1990 variable. They are in the
     same position on the tape. SS_RRQ and RRRETIRX have been left blank.

5)   There are 9 Rectype files that are placed on this redesigned tape:

     A. APA Inventory and Purchases of household appliances
     B. APL Inventory of household appliances (first quarter 1982, only)
     C. OVB Inventory and purchases of owned vehicles
     D. OVC Disposal of owned vehicles
     E. IHB Hospitalization and health insurance, detailed questions
     F. IHC Hospitalization and health insurance, medicare and medicaid
     G. MDB Medical and health expenditures, payments for medical expenses
     H. MDC Medical and health expenditures, reimbursements for expenses
     I. TRB Trips and Vacations

     See Section (IX E) for a description of these files. Note that the medical files, that do not appear
     on the 1989 or 1990 Interview tapes, are on the EXPN public-use tapes for these years.

6)   MKMDLY is formatted using 1980/81 MKMDLY codes.

7)   PROPVALX on the FMLY file represents the “approximate value the sample unit would sell for
     on today's market.” Starting in collection quarter 821 (first quarter, 1982), this variable was
     assigned to the EXPN OWB file (a Rectype file not placed on this tape). In order to have a value
     for PROPVALX in all quarters (801 through 821), the EXPN value of PROPVALX for the sample
     unit has been copied to the FMLY file.

8)   State identifier codes have been included in the FMLY files. The state identifier codes will allow
     tape users to identify the state in which participating CU's reside. Because of confidentiality
     restrictions, however, not all participating CU's will have a state assigned code. See STATE



                                               - 6 -
        IDENTIFIIER Suppression and Other Issues placed under "Topcoding and Other Nondisclosure
        Requirements".

9)      Summary Level Variables have been added to the FMLY file and are defined using 1989 and
        1990 publication definitions. Because there have been definitional changes in these variables
        over the years (i.e., the UCC's included in each Summary Level Variable), users will not always
        be able to match their estimates using these variables with the 1980-81 bulletin publication.

IV. DATA COLLECTION AND PROCESSING

         Data collection was conducted by the Census Bureau under contract with BLS. In addition to its
collection duties, the Census Bureau was responsible for field editing and coding, consistency checking,
quality control, and transmitting the data to BLS. BLS performed additional review and editing
procedures in preparing the data for publication.


A. BUREAU OF THE CENSUS ACTIVITIES

        Data collection activities have been conducted by the Census Bureau on a continuing basis since
October 1979 for the Consumer Expenditure Surveys. Due to differences in format and design, the
Interview Survey and the Diary Survey data are collected and processed separately.

         Upon completion by the interviewers, the Interview questionnaires are returned to the regional
offices, where codes are applied to identify demographic characteristics, expenditures, income and
assets, and other items such as make and model of automobile and trip destination.

         After clerical processing, the data are keyed and transmitted to the Census Processing Center in
Washington, D.C., where they pass through a detailed preliminary computer edit. Information on missing
sections of questionnaires, inconsistencies, and errors are transmitted back to the regional offices for
reconciliation by the field staff through office review or interviewer follow-up. Corrections are keyed and
transmitted to Washington, and again cycled through the preliminary computer edit. This continues until
errors identified by the preliminary edit no longer appear.

         Once a panel month's preliminary edit is complete, selected data are transcribed to the next
quarter's questionnaire. The current quarter's questionnaire is sent to the Data Preparation Division in
Jeffersonville, Indiana, for microfilming and storage. The data then undergo a series of computer edits
that identify and correct data irregularities and inconsistencies.

         Other adjustments separate mortgage and vehicle payments into principal and interest
components using associated data on the interest rate and term of the loan, eliminate business and other
reimbursed expenses, apply appropriate sales taxes, and derive weights for individual consumer units.
In addition, demographic and work experience items (except income) are imputed when missing or
invalid. All data changes and imputations are identified with flags on the Interview data file. Final tapes
of the edited and coded data are then transmitted to BLS on a monthly basis.


B. BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS ACTIVITIES

         The Bureau of Labor Statistics, upon receipt of the data from the Bureau of the Census,
conducts an extensive review to ensure that severe data aberrations are corrected. The review takes
place in several stages: a review of counts and means by region; a review of family relationship coding
inconsistencies; a review of selected extreme values for expenditure and income categories; and a
verification of the various data transformations.



                                                  - 7 -
        Cases of extreme data values are investigated by viewing questionnaires on microfilm. Errors
discovered through this procedure are corrected prior to release of the data for public use. However, the
system is not designed to detect all errors, only the most extreme outliers.

         Three major types of data adjustment routines--imputation, allocation, and time adjustment--are
carried out to improve and classify the estimates derived from the Interview Survey. Data imputation
routines correct for missing or invalid entries. All fields except income and assets are subject to
imputation. Allocation routines are applied when respondents provided insufficient expenditure detail to
meet tabulation requirements. For example, reports of combined expenditures for fuels and utilities are
allocated among gas, electricity, and other items in this group. Time adjustment routines are used to
classify expenditures by month prior to aggregation of the data to calendar-year estimates. To analyze
the effects of these adjustments, tabulations are made before and after the data adjustments.


V.   SAMPLING STATEMENT

A. POPULATION

        The population of interest is the total U.S. civilian population. Within this framework, the eligible
population is composed of all civilian noninstitutional persons (for example, those living in houses,
condominiums, or apartments) and all people residing in the following group quarters:

        Boarding houses; housing facilities for students and workers; staff units in hospitals and
        homes for the aged, infirm, or needy; permanent-type living quarters in hotels and
        motels; and mobile home parks.

        Patients and inmates are eliminated before sampling. The remaining ineligible persons in group
quarters and housing units on military reservations are eliminated by later screening. These include:

        Camps; communes; convents; monasteries; flophouses; halfway houses; nonstaff units
        in homes for the aged, infirm, or needy; transient quarters in hotels or motels; and
        missions.


         The unit of analysis, or the unit for which expenditure reports are collected is the set of eligible
individuals comprising a "consumer unit." A consumer unit consists of all members of a particular
housing unit or other type of living quarters who are related by blood, marriage, adoption, or some other
legal arrangement, such as foster children. Consumer unit determination for unrelated persons is based
on financial independence. To be considered financially independent, at least two of the three major
expense categories (food, housing, and other living expenses) have to be provided by the respondent.

B. SAMPLE DESIGN

        The Consumer Expenditure Survey is a national probability sample of households designed to
represent the total civilian noninstitutional population. The selection of households begins with primary
sampling units (PSU's), which consists of counties (or parts thereof), groups of counties, or independent
cities.

        The 1980-81 Interview Survey samples a set of 101 PSU's which includes 85 urban PSU's
selected by BLS for the Consumer Price Index program. Urban, as defined in this survey, includes the
rural populations within metropolitan statistical areas. These urban PSU's are classified by the following
four categories:




                                                  - 8 -
        1.       27 "A" certainty PSU's (that is they are self-representing), which are Metropolitan
                 Statistical Areas (MSA's) with nonfarm population greater than 1.2 million;

        2.       20 "B" PSU's, which are medium-sized MSA's;

        3.       22 "C" PSU's, which are small MSA's; and

        4.       16 "D" PSU's, which are urban nonmetropolitan areas.

         Since these PSU's were selected with probability proportional to urban population and therefore
do not represent the rural population outside of MSA's, it was necessary to supplement this design with
16 additional PSU's (denoted as "E" PSU's) representing the rural population of the country. The B, C,
and D PSU's were selected using a controlled selection procedure to insure a distribution across states
and strata. Due to budget cuts, the rural area's (E PSU's) of the sample were temporarily discontinued in
the last quarter of 1981. Consequently, only urban population estimates can be computed for 1981.

       The sample frame (that is the list from which housing units are chosen) for this survey is
generated from the 1970 Census 100-percent detail file, which is augmented by a sample drawn from
new construction permits and coverage improvement techniques to eliminate recognized deficiencies in
the Census. All Enumeration District (ED's) from the 1970 Census that failed to meet the criterion for
good addresses and all ED's in nonpermit issuing areas are grouped into the area segment frame.

         The Interview Survey is a rotating panel survey in which approximately 8,400 addresses are
contacted in each of the five calendar quarters. Allowing for bounding interviews, which are not included
on this tape, and for nonresponse (including vacancies), the number of completed interviews per quarter
is targeted at 4,800. Each quarter, one-fifth of the units interviewed are new to the survey. This panel is
interviewed for five consecutive quarters and then dropped from the survey.


C. COOPERATION LEVELS

       The response rate for the 1980-81 Interview Survey is 84% as shown below. The totals refer to
housing unit interviews when a given unique housing unit address is interviewed in a quarter.

         Type B or C nonresponses are housing units that are vacant, nonexistent, or ineligible for
interview. Type A nonresponses are housing units which the interviewers were unable to contact, or the
respondents refused to participate in the survey. The response rates stated above are based only on the
eligible housing units (i.e., the designated sample cases less type B and type C nonresponses).


D. WEIGHTING

        Each family included in the CEX represents a given number of families in the U.S. population,
which is considered to be the universe. The translation of sample families into the universe of families is
known as weighting. However, since the unit of analysis for the CEX is a consumer unit, the weighting



                                                  - 9 -
was performed at the consumer unit level. Several factors are involved in determining the weight for
each consumer unit for which an interview is obtained.

        There are five basic steps in the weighting procedure:

        1.      The basic weight assignment is given to an address and is the inverse of the
                probability of selection of the housing unit.

        2.      A weight control factor is given to each interview if subsampling is performed in
                the field.

        3.      A noninterview adjustment is made for units where data could not be collected
                from occupied housing units because of refusals or because no one was home.
                The adjustment is performed as a function of region, housing tenure, family size
                and race.

        4.      A ratio adjustment is made at the national level to adjust for 13 age, 2 sex, and 2
                race levels. Thus, there are a maximum of 52 separate ratio adjustments, one
                for each of the 52 age-sex-race cells. Insufficient cells are collapsed to insure
                the factors are based upon a minimal number of interviews.

        5.      A final weight adjustment is made to account for the CU composition.


NOTE: The weight for a consumer unit can be different for each quarter in which they participate in the
survey because in each quarter an interviewed CU represents a different number of CU's with similar
characteristics.

VI. ESTIMATION PROCEDURE

        This section provides users of the CEX Interview public-use tape with procedures for estimating
means and variances of data associated with any U.S. subpopulation. Sufficient details are given to
allow non-statistical users of the Public Use Tape to carry out any required calculations.

         Sample means are derived by computing an aggregate weighted expenditure and dividing it by
the average population over the time period being estimated. The sum of the weights for all consumer
units reporting expenditures for a particular calendar month would equal the national population. Over
an annual period this would yield 12 such populations. This amount would have to be divided by 12 to
arrive at an average annual population.

         To compute average population properly, one must "weight" the weights of the CU's, adjusting
them in relation to the CU's contribution to total expenditures. This is necessary due to the data
collection method where respondents report their expenditures using a three month recall. A variable
based on QINTRVMO (month of the interview), called MO_SCOPE at BLS, ascertains the number of
months a CU's expenditures are in scope (i.e., within the time period being estimated).

       For example, if the calendar year 1980-81 is being processed and a CU is interviewed in January
of 1980, their MO_SCOPE would equal zero because they are reporting expenditures for October,
November, and December of 1979. Similarly, if the CU was interviewed in February of 1980, their
MO_SCOPE would equal one because they are reporting expenditures for November and December of



                                                 - 10 -
1979, and January of 1980. January is the only "month-in-scope" for that CU. The first quarter of 1982
is on this tape because it includes data reported for 1981.

        Five quarters of data are needed to process calendar year estimates. Average annual
population is derived by summing the weight of each CU (FINLWT21 in the Family Characteristics and
Income or FMLY file) multiplied by the number of months the CU was in scope within the quarter, and
then dividing by 12. The division by 12 is necessary for two reasons: 1) the sum of all FINLWT21 in
each quarter represents one national population, thus four quarters of data would represent four such
population estimates, and 2) the weight for a CU may be multiplied by a factor of up to 3 using
MO_SCOPE. The product of 4 times 3 is 12.

        The aggregate expenditure is derived by first selecting costs which were incurred in the
applicable period. The variables REF_MO and REF_YR in the MTAB (Detailed Expenditures) and ITAB
(Income) files indicate which month and year expenditures were made. The aggregate expenditure is
calculated by multiplying each selected cost by the applicable CU weight and then summing these
weighted cost across all CU's. The average annual expenditure is obtained by dividing the aggregate
expenditure by the average population. The procedure can be summarized in the following steps:

Step 1: Calculate MO_SCOPE variable:
        if QINTRVYR (year of the interview) is equal to the
          calendar year being processed, then
                if QINTRVMO is 1 then MO_SCOPE is 0
                if QINTRVMO is 2 then MO_SCOPE is 1
                if QINTRVMO is 3 then MO_SCOPE is 2
                if QINTRVMO is 4-12 then MO_SCOPE is 3

         else if QINTRVYR is equal to calendar year + 1, then
                  if QINTRVMO is 1 then MO_SCOPE is 3
                  if QINTRVMO is 2 then MO_SCOPE is 2
                  if QINTRVMO is 3 then MO_SCOPE is 1

Step 2: Calculate weighted average annual population:
        AVERAGE ANNUAL POPULATION = SUM (FINLWT21 * MO_SCOPE) / 12
                           CUQ


Step 3: Calculate weighted aggregate annual expenditure:
        AGGREGATE ANNUAL EXPENDITURE = SUM (FINLWT21 * COST )
                         CUQ           UCC

Step 4: Calculate average annual expenditure:
        AVERAGE ANNUAL EXPENDITURE =
         AGGREGATE ANNUAL EXPENDITURE / AVERAGE ANNUAL POPULATION


where:
         CUQ = number of consumer units in any of the five quarters

         UCC = Universal Classification Code(s) for the expenditure/income item(s) being processed

        To calculate an annual estimate based on one quarter of data, multiply the cost for the UCC by
the FINLWT21 of the consumer unit and multiply this result by 4. Divide the resulting value by the sum
of the FINLWT21 of all consumer units after adjusting with MO_SCOPE. More detailed examples are
offered below.

A. DEFINITION OF TERMS

        A typical use of CEX data would be to estimate expenditures on specific items by a
subpopulation of consumer units, for example, expenditures on color televisions by all CU's residing in
the Northeast. The following definitions will be helpful in formulating the above type of estimate.

Let:
        S = all CU's in subpopulation of interest
        k = expenditure item(s) of interest
        q = number of months for which expenditure estimate is desired
        r = number of months of expenditure data to be used in calculating the
               estimate
        j = individual CU in subpopulation S
        t = month in which expenditure data is available

Then:
        E(j,k,t) = expenditure by CU(j) on item k during month t.
        W(j,t,45) = weight assigned to CU(j) during month t. The 45 denotes the
                           45th set of replicate weights on the tape (FINLWT21).

         CEX weighting is performed monthly based on the month of interview (collection month). While
each CU reports expenditures for the preceding three calendar months, the weight used for estimation is
that derived for the interview month. In addition, the weights have been adjusted so that the sum of all
CU weights for CU's interviewed in one month approximates one-third of the U.S. population. Since
each month's expenditures come from three groups of CU's, the sum of all weights for these CU's
approximates the total U.S. population.

        X(S,k,q,r)   = an estimate of aggregate expenditures by CU's in
                                 subpopulation S on item k over a period of q
                                 months, and where data collected over r months
                                 is used.

        XBAR(S,k,q,r) = an estimate of the mean expenditure by CU's in
                               subpopulation S on item k over a period of q
                               months, and where data collected over r months
                               is used.

B. ESTIMATION OF AGGREGATE AND MEAN EXPENDITURES

1. ANNUAL ESTIMATION BASED ON LESS THAN 12 MONTHS OF DATA

       The following example will clarify general formulas given in this and succeeding paragraphs.
The objective is to estimate aggregate expenditures on color televisions (CTV) by CU's in the Northeast
(NE) over a 12 month period. Data collected over 6 months will be used to make the estimate.
Employing the notation described above:

        X(NE,CTV,12,6) = 12/6 (SUM(W(j,1,45) E(j,CTV,1))
                             + SUM(W(j,2,45) E(j,CTV,2))
                             + SUM(W(j,3,45) E(j,CTV,3))
                                   .
                                   .
                                   .



                                                - 12 -
                                    .
                               + SUM(W(j,6,45) E(j,CTV,6)))

where the summation is done over all j in NE.

       The above example can be generalized as follows:

       X(S,k,q,r) = q/r (SUM(W(j,1,45) E(j,k,1))
                          + SUM(W(j,2,45) E(j,k,2))
                          + SUM(W(j,3,45) E(j,k,3))
                               .
                               .
                               .
                               .
                          + SUM(W(j,r,45) E(j,k,r)))

where the summation is done over all j in S. An estimate for the expenditures for two or more items may
be obtained by summing those expenditures at the CU level and then proceeding as before.

       The next example will estimate the mean expenditure on color televisions by CU's residing in the
Northeast. This can be described as:

       XBAR(NE,CTV,12,6) = 12 (SUM(W(j,1,45) E(j,CTV,1))
                               + SUM(W(j,2,45) E(j,CTV,2))
                               + SUM(W(j,3,45) E(j,CTV,3))
                                     .
                                     .
                                     .
                                     .
                               + SUM(W(j,6,45) E(j,CTV,6)))
                                 / W(NE,6,45)

where W(NE,6,45) = SUM(W(j,1,45)) + SUM(W(j,2,45)) + ... + SUM(W(j,6,45)). The summation is done
over all j in NE.

       Once again, this can be generalized as:

       XBAR(S,k,q,r) = q (SUM(W(j,1,45) E(j,k,1))
                           + SUM(W(j,2,45) E(j,k,2))
                           + SUM(W(j,3,45) E(j,k,3))
                                 .
                                 .
                                 .
                                 .
                           + SUM(W(j,r,45) E(j,k,r)))
                             / W(S,r,45)

where W(S,r,45) = SUM(W(j,1,45)) + SUM(W(j,2,45)) + . . . SUM(W(j,r,45)), the summation is done for
all j in S.

        These formulas can be used in any case where the number of months for which the expenditure
estimate is desired is greater than the number of months of expenditure data to be used in calculating
the estimate.



                                                 - 13 -
2. ANNUAL ESTIMATION BASED ON 12 MONTHS OF DATA

        It can be readily seen that if the objective is to estimate annual expenditures using 12 months of
data, the formulas for aggregate and mean expenditures can be simplified. Using the example of
spending on color televisions by CU's in the Northeast, aggregate and mean expenditures can be
described as:

        X(NE,CTV,12,12) = (SUM(W(j,1,45) E(j,CTV,1))
                             + SUM(W(j,2,45) E(j,CTV,2))
                             + SUM(W(j,3,45) E(j,CTV,3))
                                   .
                                   .
                                   .
                                   .
                             + SUM(W(j,12,45) E(j,CTV,12)))

where the summation is done for all j in NE.

        XBAR(NE,CTV,12,12) = (SUM(W(j,1,45) E(j,CTV,1))
                                + SUM(W(j,2,45) E(j,CTV,2))
                                + SUM(W(j,3,45) E(j,CTV,3))
                                       .
                                       .
                                       .
                                       .
                                + SUM(W(j,12,45) E(j,CTV,12)))
                                  / W(NE,12,45)

where W(NE,12,45) = SUM(W(j,1,45)) + SUM(W(j,2,45)) + . . . SUM(W(j,12,45)),the summation is done
for all j in NE.

These formulas can be generalized and applied to any case where the number of months for which the
expenditure estimate is desired matches the number of months of expenditure data to be used in
calculating the estimate.

        X(S,k,q,r) = (SUM(W(j,1,45) E(j,k,1))
                        + SUM(W(j,2,45) E(j,k,2))
                        + SUM(W(j,3,45) E(j,k,3))
                              .
                              .
                              .
                              .
                        + SUM(W(j,r,45) E(j,k,r)))

where q = r, and the summation is done for all j in S.

        XBAR(S,k,q,r) = (SUM(W(j,1,45) E(j,k,1))
                           + SUM(W(j,2,45) E(j,k,2))
                           + SUM(W(j,3,45) E(j,k,3))
                                 .
                                 .
                                 .
                                 .



                                                 - 14 -
                              + SUM(W(j,r,45) E(j,k,r)))
                                / W(S,r,45)

where q = r, W(S,r,45) = SUM(W(j,1,45)) + SUM(W(j,2,45)) + ... + SUM(W(j,r,45)), and the summation is
done for all j in S.

C. ESTIMATION OF MEAN INCOME

       Using data stored in the ITAB files, the estimation of income from various sources for any
desired subpopulation is a straightforward application of the formulas employed to estimate
expenditures.

        It should be noted that income values for some ITAB items have been multiplied by 4.
Therefore, to be used at the micro level, they should be divided by 4. For a complete list of these ITAB
items, see Appendix I. The following example demonstrates how mean income can be derived.
Specifically, let:

                 y = income item(s) of interest
           I(j,y,t) = income of CU(j) for source y during month t.
        IBAR(S,y,q,r) = an estimate of the mean income for CU's in subpopulation S for source y over a
                                 period of q months, and where data collected over r months is used.

Then the estimated mean annual dividend (DIV) income for CU's in the Northeast given 6 months of data
is:

        IBAR(NE,DIV,12,6) = 12 (SUM(W(j,1,45) I(j,DIV,1))
                                 + SUM(W(j,2,45) I(j,DIV,2))
                                 + SUM(W(j,3,45) I(j,DIV,3))
                                       .
                                       .
                                       .
                                       .
                                 + SUM(W(j,6,45) I(j,DIV,6)))
                                   / W(NE,6,45)

where W(NE,6,45) = SUM(W(j,1,45)) + SUM(W(j,2,45)) + . . . SUM(W(j,6,45)),the summation is done for
all j in NE.


VII. RELIABILITY STATEMENT

        Sample surveys are subject to two types of errors, nonsampling and sampling. Nonsampling
errors can be attributed to many sources, such as definitional difficulties, differences in the interpretation
of questions, inability or unwillingness of the respondent to provide correct information, mistakes in
recording or coding the data obtained, and other errors of collection, response, processing, coverage,
and estimation for missing data. The full extent of the nonsampling error is unknown.

       Sampling errors occur because observations are not taken from the entire population. The
standard error, which is the accepted measure for sampling error, is an estimate of the difference
between the sample data and the data that would have been obtained from a complete census. The
sample estimate and its estimated standard error enables one to construct confidence intervals.




                                                  - 15 -
A. VARIANCE ESTIMATION

         Variance estimation can be done in many ways. The method illustrated below (a pseudo
replication technique) is chosen because it is accurate and simple to execute. The basic idea is to
construct several artificial "subsamples" from the original sample data. This is done in a manner that
preserves the variance information of the original data in the subsamples. The subsamples (or pseudo
replications) can then be used to obtain approximate variances for the estimates. Justification for the
procedure may be found in references 1 and 2.

         The Interview public-use tape contains information to facilitate the use of this variance
estimation procedure. Specifically, 45 weights are associated with each CU. As noted in the
ESTIMATION PROCEDURE section, the 45th weight (or replicate weight as it is sometimes called),
FINLWT21, is used for estimation of aggregate or mean expenditures. The other replicate weights (1
through 44) are used for variance estimation of the aggregates or means at BLS. In this technique only
half the CU's are used in each of the 44 pseudo replicates. The weights for those CU's not included in a
particular pseudo replicate are assigned a value of missing.

         Recall that X(S,k,q,r) is an estimate of the aggregate amount spent by CU's in subpopulation S
on item k over a period of q months using r months of data. This notation does not explicitly identify the
replicate as a variable because to calculate the aggregate only the 45th replicate, which represents the
entire population, can be used.

         An estimate for the variance of X(S,k,q,r), denoted by V(X(S,k,q,r)), can be made by generating
44 separate estimates using the other 44 replicate weights and employing the standard formula for
computing sample variance. To illustrate the estimation of variance, the notation must first be expanded
to include the replicates explicitly.

Let:
               a = one of the 45 sets of replicate weights on the FMLY files of the tape

        X(S,k,q,r,a) = an estimate of aggregate expenditures by CU's in subpopulation S on item k over
                               a period of q months, using data collected over r months, calculated using
                               the
                                 weights of the ath replicate

Note that an estimate using any one of the first 44 replicate weights uses only part of the expenditure
data; hence, X(S,k,q,r,1), X(S,k,q,r,2) ... X(S,k,q,r,44) will not equal X(S,k,q,r,45).

Variance can thus be estimated as follows:

V(X(S,k,q,r))= 1/44 (SUM(X(S,k,q,r,a) - X(S,k,q,r,45))**2)

where the summation is done over a = 1 to 44.

Similarly, estimates for the variances of XBAR(S,k,q,r) and IBAR(S,y,q,r) can be given as:

V(XBAR(S,k,q,r)) = 1/44 (SUM(XBAR(S,k,q,r,a) - XBAR(S,k,q,r,45))**2)

        and

V(IBAR(S,y,q,r)) = 1/44 (SUM(IBAR(S,y,q,r,a) - IBAR(S,y,q,r,45))**2)

where XBAR(S,k,q,r,a) and IBAR(S,y,q,r,a) are estimates calculated using the weights of the ath
replicate, and where the summations are done for a = 1 to 44.

B. ESTIMATING SAMPLING ERROR

       The standard error of the mean is used to obtain confidence intervals. The standard error of the
mean is defined as the square root of the variance of the mean, or for terms of notation, s.e. (XBAR).
Assuming the normal distribution applies to the means of expenditures, the following statements can be
made:

    The chances that an estimate from a given sample would differ from a complete census figure
    by less than one standard error are approximately 68 out of 100. The chances that the
    difference would be less than 1.6 times the standard error are approximately 90 out of 100.
    The chances that the difference would be less than two times the standard error are
    approximately 95 out of 100.

       The following examples use 1985 data for illustrative purposes. The mean expenditure for total
food by complete income reporters in 1985 was $3,394.44. The standard error for this estimate is
$28.89. Hence, the 95 percent confidence interval around this estimate is from $3,336.66 to $3,452.22.

        Standard errors may also be used to perform hypothesis testing, a procedure that evaluates
population parameters using sample estimates. The most common types of hypotheses are: 1) the
population parameters are identical, and 2) they are different.

         For example, the mean expenditure for apparel and services for complete income reporters in
the $5,000-$9,999 group in 1985 was $523.83 and for complete income reporters in the $10,000-$14,999
group was $710.55. The apparent difference between the two mean expenditures is $710.55-
$523.83=186.72. The standard error on the estimate of $523.83 is $35.85 and the estimated standard
error for $710.55 is $33.36.

       The standard error of a difference is approximately equal to

       s.e.(XBAR1-XBAR2) = SQRT[V(XBAR1)+V(XBAR2)]

        This assumes XBAR1 and XBAR2 are disjoint subsets of the population. Hence the standard
error of the difference in apparel and services expenditures between complete income reporters of
$10,000-$14,999 and complete income reporters of $5,000-$9,999 is about

       SQRT[(35.85)**2 + (33.36)**2] = 48.97

       This means that the 95 percent confidence interval around the difference is from $88.78 to
$284.66. Since this interval does not include zero, we can conclude with 95 percent confidence that the
mean apparel and services expenditures for the complete income reporters of $10,000-$14,999 is



                                               - 17 -
greater than the mean apparel and services expenditures for complete income reporters of $5,000-
$9,000.

         Analyses of the difference between two estimates can also be performed on nondisjoint sets of
population, where one is a subset of the other. The formula for computing the standard error of the
difference between two nondisjoint estimates is

        s.e.(XBAR1-XBAR2) = SQRT[V(XBAR1) + V(XBAR2) -
                   2(corr. coeff.)(s.e.(XBAR1))(s.e.(XBAR2))]

where corr. coeff. is the correlation coefficient between XBAR1 and XBAR2, which generally is no greater
than 0.2 for computations in this formulation.


VIII. TOPCODING AND OTHER NONDISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS

         Topcoding refers to the replacement of data where the absolute value of the original data
exceeds the allowable limits. The data are replaced with a critical value which represents the limit,
retaining the original sign. Topcoding is done to adhere to rules on nondisclosure of consumer unit
information designed to maintain respondent confidentiality. A topcode flag has been assigned to
topcoded variables. The following topcoding rules were applied to the data on the 1980-81 Interview
Survey public-use tape.


A. FAMILY CHARACTERISTICS AND INCOME FILE (FMLY)

        If the absolute value of one of the following income variables was greater than the critical value
of $75,000, the value of that income variable was set to $75,000 with the original sign retained and
flagged as topcoded.

         Some income variables are calculated using the values of their component variables. As such,
they are not topcoded in the conventional sense of being bounded by a critical value, but rather are
flagged as topcoded because one of their component variables is topcoded. Thus, there is no
relationship between the value of these variables and whether they are flagged as topcoded. The
following illustrates three alternative situations that may occur:

         The value for the variable FNONFRMX is computed as the sum of the values reported
for the variable NONFARMX from the MEMB file. NONFARMX is subject to standard topcoding
at the critical value of $75,000.

                                   NONFARMX                                      FNONFRMX
                                AS         AFTER
                             REPORTED    TOPCODING                      VALUE            TOPCODED?
Consumer Unit 1:
               MEMB1               $60,000              $60,000
               MEMB2                60,000               60,000                120,000      No

Consumer Unit 2:
               MEMB1                  100,000            75,000
               MEMB2                 50,000              50,000                125,000      Yes

Consumer Unit 3:
               MEMB1                 70,000              70,000
               MEMB2                 55,000              55,000                125,000      No

Consumer Unit 4:
               MEMB1                 75,000              75,000
               MEMB2                -30,000             -30,000                 45,000      Yes

         While Consumer Units 1 and 2 each originally report $120,000 in NONFARMX,
topcoding is done only on the value reported by MEMB1 of CU2. Thus, the value for
FNONFRMX for CU2 is lower than for CU1 and is flagged as topcoded while CU1 is not. A
variation of this theme can be seen in CU's 2 and 3. The original report of NONFARMX for CU2
is $25,000 greater than that of CU3. Because of topcoding, however, the value for FNONFRMX
for CU's 2 and 3 is identical. To distinguish between these two values, one must check the flag


                                                - 19 -
variable associated with FNONFRMX. The case of CU4 demonstrates that the value for
FNONFRMX can be under $75,000, the critical value in most other topcoding situations, yet still
be flagged as topcoded. This is due to the presence of a negative value (loss) for NONFARMX
reported by MEMB2.

The following are the income variables which are calculated using values of their component variables:

        EARNINCX         Family earnings income before taxes
        FFRMINCX         Income or loss received from own farm
        FINCATAX         Total amount of family income after taxes
        FINCBTAX         Total amount of family income before taxes
        FINDRETX         Contributions to self-employed retirement plan
        FJSSDEDX         Social security payment
        FNONFRMX         Income from non-farm business
        FRRETIRX         Amount received from Railroad Retirement and Social Security
        FSALARYX         Wage and salary income before deduction
        FSSIX            Combined supplemental security income checks
        NO_EARNX         Family income other than earnings before taxes
        NONINCMX         Other money receipts excluded from family income
        TOTTXPDX         Total amount personal taxes

        If the absolute value of one of the following income variables was greater than the critical value
of $75,000, the value of that income variable was set to the critical value, with the original sign retained,
and flagged as topcoded. Its component variables were suppressed (set to zero) and also flagged as
topcoded. Topcoding the component variables and recalculating the variable would have resulted in
misleading values.

to $1,000 and flagged as topcoded.

      For all consumer units residing in rural areas, the variable REGION is suppressed. The variable
POPSIZE (population size of a PSU) is suppressed for all consumer units residing in the West.


STATE IDENTIFIER: Suppression and Other Issues

        The release of the state identifier requires some suppression in order to meet the Census Micro
Data Review Panel's criterion for releasing geographic information. This criterion states that the smallest
geographically identifiable area has a population size of 100,000 or more. Currently, BLS releases three
geographic variables. These are POPSIZE, REGION, and BLS_URBN, which show respectively, the
population size of the geographic area that is sampled, the four Census regions, and whether the area is
urban or rural. Some suppression of these variables is currently done because, in combination, they
could be used to identify areas of 100,000 or less. To release the additional geographic information on
STATE requires additional suppression. This suppression results in approximately 17 percent of the
FMLY records having the STATE variable blank.

        Since the CE is not designed to produce state-level estimates, summing the consumer unit
weights by state will not yield state population totals. To understand why, a brief explanation of how CE
weights are constructed follows:

         A consumer unit's basic weight reflects its probability of selection among a group of primary
sampling units of similar characteristics. For example, sample units in an urban nonmetropolitan area in
California may represent similar areas in Wyoming and Nevada. Among other adjustments, consumer
units are post-stratified nationally by sex-age-race. For example, the weights of consumer units
containing a black male, age 16-24 in Alabama, Colorado, or New York, are all adjusted equivalently.
Therefore, weighted population state totals will not match population totals calculated from other surveys
that are designed to represent state data.

         To summarize, the CE sample was not designed to produce estimates for individual states.
Although state-level estimates that are unbiased in a repeated sampling sense can be calculated for
various statistical measures, such as means and aggregates, these estimates will generally be subject to
large variances. Additionally, a particular state-population estimate from the CE sample may be far from
the true state-population estimate.

NOTE: Data in the ITAB file is selected data from the FMLY file expressed in a monthly form similar to
the MTAB structure. This facilitates processing.

       For 1980-81, if the market value of owned home, UCC 800720, was greater than or equal to
$200,000/12, the value was set to $200,000/12 and flagged.

       If the value of the age UCC 980020 was greater than 90/12, it was set to 90/12 and flagged as
topcoded.

         If the value of 910050 (Rental equivalence of owned home) was greater than $1,000/12, it was
set to $1,000/12 and flagged as topcoded.

           The following income UCC's were not directly topcoded because their corresponding FMLY
variables were not topcoded, but recalculated using their topcoded components (see above in FMLY
file). If the FMLY variable was flagged as topcoded due to recalculation, then so was the corresponding
UCC.

or '560', then the following topcoding rule was implemented:

        If the value of the variable MEDPMTX (Amount of medical payment) was greater than $200,000,
then the value of MEDPMTX was set to $200,000 and flagged as topcoded.

IX. FILE INFORMATION

        This public-use tape is available in two forms: EBCDIC 6250 bpi and ASCII 6250 bpi. The
EBCDIC tapes are labeled tapes containing all the files on two tapes. The ASCII tapes are unlabeled,
and also contain all files on two tapes. The order of the files on the tapes is given below in the Naming
Convention section.

        For each quarter, there are 4 standard files of data: Family characteristics and income (FMLY),
Member characteristics and income (MEMB), Monthly expenditures (MTAB), and Monthly income
(ITAB). There are an additional 9 files derived directly from questionnaire sections, each containing all 9
quarters of data:

           A.    APA Inventory and Purchases of household appliances
           B.    APL Inventory of household appliances (first quarter 1982, only)
           C.    OVB Inventory and purchases of owned vehicles
           D.    OVC Disposal of owned vehicles
           E.    IHB Hospitalization and health insurance, detailed questions
           F.    IHC Hospitalization and health insurance, medicare and medicaid
           G.    MDB Medical and health expenditures, payments for medical expenses
           H.    MDC Medical and health expenditures, reimbursements for expenses
           I.    TRB Trips and Vacations

Note: In quarters Q801 through Q814, the EXPN rectype file APA, “Inventory and Purchase of Household
        Appliances” included, as the name suggests, both inventory and purchases of appliances.
        Beginning in Q821, the APA file included only purchases of appliances, while APL (a new
        rectype for Q821) included the inventory of appliances collected in Section 1.

       NEWID, the consumer units identification number, is the common variable among files by which
matching is done.

B. DATA FLAGS

          For characteristic variables, blank data fields are explained in a separate coded field following
the data field. The flag names are derived from the names of the data fields they reference. In general
the rule is to add an underscore to the last position. However, if the variable is eight characters in length,
then the fifth position is replaced with an underscore. If this fifth position is already an underscore, then
the fifth position is changed to a zero.

         The coded explanations or flags are defined as follows:

        A flag value of "A" indicates a valid blank; that is, a blank field where a response is not
        anticipated.

        A flag value of "B" indicates a blank resulting from an invalid nonresponse; that is, a
        nonresponse that is not consistent with other data reported by the CU.

        A flag value of "C" refers to a blank resulting from a "don't know", refusals, or other types of
        nonresponses.

        A flag value of "D" indicates that the characteristics or weight factor field contains a valid or good
        data value.

        A flag value of "T" represents topcoding.

D. FILE CONTENT AND STRUCTURE

         Each consumer unit's identification number, NEWID, on each file corresponds with its
identification number on all other files. For each variable there is a description, codes, start position,
format, and source. The source is listed under the variable description and has a format such as "S03B
2b" which can be interpreted as Section 3 part B question 2b of the questionnaire.

        Data fields are either character or numeric. The format distinguishes each variable as numeric
(NUM) or character (CHAR) and also the number of positions in the data record each variable occupies.
Variables which include decimal points in their value are formatted as NUM(t,r) where t is the total
number of positions occupied, and r is the number of places to the right of the decimal.

1. CONSUMER UNIT CHARACTERISTICS AND INCOME (FMLY)

        The "FMLY" files, also referred to as "Consumer Unit Characteristics and Income", contain
consumer unit characteristics, consumer unit income, characteristics and earnings of the reference
person, and characteristics and earnings of the spouse. These files include weights needed to calculate
population estimates and variances.

        Each record consists of a CU's information pertaining to 3 months of data (one quarter). Some
data, notably income, is asked using a 12 month recall period. Other data, such as family size, refers to
the point at which the CU was interviewed. In either case, income and characteristic information can
change from quarter to quarter. This will occur, for example, if a member enters or leaves the CU.

                     Digit 8 Interview number, 2 thru 5.

                     It is possible for a consumer unit to
                     skip an interview. For example, a
                     consumer unit could have a 2nd, 3rd and
                     5th interview but no 4th interview.

SUMMARY EXPENDITURE DATA:
        For each summary expenditure category listed below there are 2 variables. The first contains
expenditures made by the CU in the previous calendar quarter (last 2 letters of the variable name 'PQ').
So if a CU was interviewed in May (when they reported their February, March and April expenditures),


                                                 - 67 -
the first variable would contain their February and March expenditures. The second variable would
contain expenditures made in the calendar quarter of the interview (last 2 letters of the variable name
'CQ'). For the consumer unit interviewed in May, the second variable would contain their April
expenditures. These variables are set up this way for both annual and quarterly analysis.

       The summary level variables are BLS derived. A list of UCC's comprising each summary
expenditure variable is listed below the variable description.

NOTE: UCC's 710110, 800801, 800810-800860 and 900001 are derived from questions asked only in
the fifth interview, and thus there are no values for these UCC's from consumer units in their second
through fourth interviews. When BLS computes its publication estimates, these “fifth interview only”
UCC’s are first multiplied by 4 to compensate for the missing interview values. However, when the
summary level variables were created, these UCC’s were not multiplied by 4. Therefore, population
estimates that are computed from the relevant summary level variables will not match BLS publication
estimates. These summary level variables include MISCPQ and MISCCQ, and CASHCOPQ and
CASHCOCQ.

2. MEMBER CHARACTERISTICS AND INCOME (MEMB)

         The "MEMB" files, also referred to as "Member Characteristics and Income", contain selected
characteristics for each consumer unit member, including reference person and spouse. One record
consists of information for a CU member for 3 months of data (one quarter). Some data, notably
income, is asked using a 12 month recall period. Other data, such as age refers to the point at which the
CU was interviewed. In either case, income and characteristic information can change from quarter to
quarter.

3. DETAILED EXPENDITURES (MTAB)

        The "MTAB" files, also referred to as "Detailed Expenditures", provide monthly data at the
universal classification code (UCC) level (see appendix 1). In this file expenditures are given for a
consumer unit by UCC and by Gift/Non-gift status. There may be more than one record for a UCC in a
single month if that is what was reported to the interviewer. There are no missing values in this file. If
there was no value reported, there is no record for the UCC.

Note: To be used at the macro level, the following UCC's need to be multiplied by 4 because these data
are collected in only the 2nd or 5th interviews.

4. INCOME (ITAB) LRECL=33 BLKSIZE=11550

         The "ITAB" files, also referred to as "Income", provide monthly data at the Universal
Classification Code (UCC) level (see appendix 1) for consumer unit characteristics and income. This file
is created directly from the FMLY file, and was created to enhance computer processing when using both
monthly expenditure values from MTAB with family characteristics information from the FMLY file.
There are no missing values in this file. If there was no value reported, there is no record for the UCC.

         The following UCC's are from questions asked in only the 5th interview. Therefore, there will be
no values for these UCC's for consumer units in their 2nd through 4th interviews. They have been
multiplied by 4 because these data are used as an estimator for those CU's not asked. Therefore, to be
used at the micro level they should be divided by 4. For example, if a consumer unit reports $50,000 for
cash contributions for support to persons not in the consumer unit for the past 12 months, the amount of
(($50,000*4)/12 = $16,666.67) is entered as the cost for each of the 3 months of the quarter for UCC
800801. It is multiplied by 4 because only a fourth of all consumer units interviewed in a quarter are
asked this question (those in the fifth interview) and it is divided by 12 to make it a monthly figure. So for
the following UCC's, to obtain the annual value for the consumer unit, sum the cost for the 3 months.

        Of the above UCC's, 800801, 800810-800860, and 900001 were used to calculate total
expenditures in our publications. For the summary variables in the FMLY file, these UCC's were
included, but not multiplied by 4 because these variables are at the micro level (pertaining to an
individual CU). See NOTE under Summary Expenditure Data in the FMLY file discription section of this
documentation.

E. FILES CONTAINING DURABLES INFORMATION

1. INTRODUCTION

        These files contain data on the inventory of major household appliances and vehicles as well as
data from the travel section of the 1980 Consumer Expenditure Survey. The main purpose of collecting
the inventory information was to improve the accuracy of reporting by bounding the time period when
items were first obtained, so as to minimize duplication of reports of purchase of the same item in later
interviews.

         Each consumer unit's identification number, NEWID, on each file corresponds with its
identification number on all other files. For each variable there is a description, codes, start position,
format, and source.

        Data fields are either character or numeric. The format distinguishes each variable as numeric
(NUM) or character (CHAR) and also the number of positions in the data record each variable occupies.
Variables which include decimal points in their value are formatted as NUM(t,r) where t is the total
number of positions occupied, including the decimal, and r is the number of places to the right of the
decimal.


2. FILE CONTENT AND STRUCTURE

For each section of the questionnaire covered by this portion of the tape there is a file:
       1) Appliance purchases and inventory (APA),
       2) Appliance inventory, (APL--Q821, only),
       3) Vehicle inventories and purchases (OVB),
       4) Vehicle disposals (OVC),
       5) Hospitalization and health insurance expenditures (IHB)
       6) Hospitalization and health insurance expenditures-Medicaid and
          Medicare (IHC)
       7) Payments for medical expenses (MDB)
       8) Reimbursements for medical expenses (MDC)
       9) Detailed travel questions (TRB).

Each file contains nine quarters of data (except APL). For each field there is a description, codes and
their translation, start position, format, and source.


DATA FLAGS

         Directly beneath most field names there is an accompanying flag field. The flag fields indicate
reasons for missing or adjusted data fields. The following are the possible values of a flag field and its
interpretation:

        "A"     indicates a valid blank; that is, a blank field where a response is not anticipated.

        "B"     indicates a blank resulting from an invalid nonresponse; that is, a nonresponse
                that is not consistent with other data reported by the CU.

        "C"     refers to a blank resulting from a "don't know", refusals, or other types of
                nonresponses.



                                                  - 88 -
        "D"     indicates that the characteristics or weight factor field contains a valid or good
                data value.

        "T"     represents topcoding.

        "H"     identifies an expenditure that has been allocated to other fields with the original
                expenditure being overwritten with a blank.

The flag names are derived from the names of the data fields they reference. In general the rule is: An
underscore is added to the last position of the data field name to form the flag name. The exceptions to
this rule are:

         1. if the name is eight characters long, then the fifth position is an underscore, or
         2. if the fifth position is already an underscore, then the fifth position is a zero.


ALLOCATION AND RECORD ORIGIN:

        Expenditures which have been allocated and have flag values set to 'H' can be recalculated by
using the fields ALCNO and SEQNO. SEQNO is a counter assigned to make records unique. ALCNO is
zero unless the record has been split into more records due to allocation. If ALCNO is greater than zero,
the corresponding expenditure is the result of allocation from a field which has been replaced with a
blank for that CU. By summing expenditures with ALCNO greater than zero and the same SEQNO as
the one allocated and replaced with a blank, one can arrive at the value which was allocated.

The field REC_ORIG, which occurs in every section and is coded, has the following interpretation:

   1. Data from the current interview month questionnaire.

   2. Data are reported in the previous quarter's interview that is encompassed by the current
         reference period. These data are brought forward through the reference period
         adjustment process.

   3. Data reported in the previous quarter's interview that is encompassed by the current
         reference period, and this logical record duplicates a logical record from the current
         interview month. These data are brought forward through the reference period
         adjustment process, the data duplication is also identified during this process.

   4. Inventory data reported in previous quarters' interviews brought forward through the
         inventory update process. No updates are applied to this logical record as none are
         indicated in the current inventory chart.

   5. Inventory data reported in previous quarters' interviews brought forward through the
         inventory update process. Updates are applied based upon data contained in the
         current inventory chart.

   6. Data created by the edit system.

X.   TAPE VERIFICATION AND ESTIMATION METHODOLOGY

                                          A COMPUTER PROGRAM EXAMPLE

Upon acquiring this public-use tape, many users will want to perform test runs to insure that they can
access data on the tape and to validate the values contained in the data fields. In the past, users have
tested the public-use tapes by attempting to reproduce publication tables released in the series of CE
bulletins by BLS. These efforts have failed due to lack of familiarity with CE publication programming
methodology and topcoding of data on the tape itself. The following programs give users a benchmark
to verify that their copy of the tape contains valid data, illustrate BLS's methodology in producing
publication tables, and offer an example of coding to access the table, and a bulletin table output. The
programs are written in SAS. Refer to the table following the program to check output. All variables and
ranges referred to in the program are described in detail in Section VIII. D., 'File Content and Structure'
in this documentation. The first two programs demonstrate how to extract variables from selected files.
The third program employs the data sets created by the first two programs to construct the sample table
output. This program operates by creating two SAS arrays; values in one array are divided by the value
in the other array to obtain quotients signifying weighted mean expenditures. The base or denominator
for the division is a vector consisting of the weighted total population for the U.S. and selected income
class categories. The numerator is a matrix of aggregate weighted costs for each line item in the table
for the total U.S. population and each income class category.

Consumer unit
         A consumer unit comprises either: (1) all members of a particular household who are related by
blood, marriage, adoption, or other legal arrangements; (2) a person living alone or sharing a household
with others or living as a roomer in a private home or lodging house or in permanent living quarters in a
hotel or motel, but who is financially independent; or (3) two or more persons living together who pool
their income to make joint expenditure decisions. Financial independence is determined by the three
major expense categories: housing, food, and other living expenses. To be considered financially
independent, at least two of the three major expense categories have to be provided by the respondent.

Reference person
         The first member mentioned by the respondent when asked to "Start with the name of the person
or one of the persons who owns or rents the home." It is with respect to this person that the relationship
of other consumer unit members is determined.

Income before taxes
       The combined income earned by all consumer unit members 14 years old or over during the 12
months preceding the interview. The components of income are: Wage and salary income, business
income, farm income, Social Security income and Supplemental Security income, unemployment
compensation, workmen's compensation, public assistance, welfare, interest, dividends, pension income,
income from roomers or boarders, other rental income, income from regular contributions, other income,
and food stamps.

Income after taxes
        Income before taxes minus personal taxes which includes federal income taxes, state and local
taxes, and other taxes.

Complete income reporters
         The distinction between complete and incomplete income reporters is based in general on
whether the respondent provides values for major sources of income, such as wages and salaries, self-
employment income, and Social Security income. Even complete income reporters may not provide a
full accounting of all income from all sources. In the current survey, consumer units that report across-
the-board zero income are categorized as incomplete reporters.

PUBLIC-USE TAPES

   Public-use tapes for the Diary and Interview Surveys are now available for single years from 1984 to
1991, and as two-year tapes for 1982-83 and 1980-81. Seven public-use tapes are available from the


                                               - 172 -
1972-73 survey including Diary Survey, detailed food quantity tapes; and integrated adjusted Quarterly
Interview Survey- Summary, Detailed, Consumer Durables, and Clothing and Household Textiles tapes.
Information about the tapes is available from the BLS national office.


DISKETTES

    Diskettes containing integrated Diary and Interview survey data on consumer expenditures, income,
and characteristics are available for the years 1984 through 1991. The data are presented in tables
classified by quintiles of income, income classes, age, size of consumer unit, composition of consumer
unit, number of earners, housing tenure, race, type of area (urban-rural), region, and occupation.
Expenditure categories in these tables are similar to those shown in the tables of the bulletin
publications. Integrated data are available for 1984 through 1991 on separate diskettes. Data for the
years 1987 through 1991 are also available on one high-density diskette, or in a five diskette package.
Data for 1990-91 (two-year tables) classified by income before taxes, cross-tabulated by age, family size,
or region are available on separate diskettes and are also combined on one high-density diskette. Data
for 1990-91 (two-year tables) for selected Metropolitan Statistical Areas as well as for single persons
classified by gender, cross-tabulated by age or income are also available on separate diskettes.
Diskettes, both 5 1/4" and 3 1/2 ", are available in either the Lotus 1-2-3, or ASCII format.


STANDARD ERROR TABLES

  Standard error tables for 1985 Diary data are available from the BLS national office upon request.
These are cell specific and therefore extensive.
