Description

DRYER indicates whether the housing unit contained a clothes-drying machine, and whether the dryer's heat source was electricity or gas.

In 1960, not all households received this question, and only 20 percent of cases in the IPUMS include the question. Such cases accurately represent proportional distributions but not correct absolute numbers for the total population. See SAMP1960 for instructions on making appropriate corrections to derive absolute numbers for the total population.
