This data collection is comprised of responses from two sets of survey questionnaires, the basic Current Population Survey (CPS) and a survey on the topic of School Enrollment in the United States, which was administered as a supplement to the October CPS. The Census Bureau and the National Center for Education Statistics jointly sponsored the supplemental questions. The CPS, administered monthly, is a labor force survey providing current estimates of the economic status and activities of the population of the United States, for the week prior to the survey. Specifically, the CPS provides 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 estimates of total unemployment. The October supplemental survey queried respondents on school enrollment for all persons in the household aged three and over. Information was collected on current grade at public or private school, whether attending college full- or part-time at a two-or four-year institution, year last attended a regular school, year graduated from high school, grade retention, library use, library accessibility, and resources for people with disabilities. Demographic variables include age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, occupation, and income.
