1998-1999 TUS-CPS Data

In 1998-1999, a Core TUS questionnaire was fielded, using mostly the same instrument that was administered in 1998-99. For a list of the few differences, see the footnotes to the 2001-02 questionnaire.

Data and Read-in Files

SAS code for creating a permanent SAS dataset from the .dat and ASCII text files (called “SAS Read-In Files”) is available for the harmonized and single wave public use files, respectively.  Each program reads all variables from the core and the supplement and creates a SAS dataset containing all of the variables.

Note: Replicate weight files may be found at the CPS FTP site.

The data tables listed here provide examples of the type of information that researchers can obtain from the TUS. These tables are also provided in the PDF file, Representative Survey Findings.

When using these tables, please note that:
