PWMET98
Place of work: metropolitan status, 1980

Description

PWMET98 traces the movements of workers from their residences to their workplaces, providing information not available in PWMETRO.

For discussion of the concepts "metropolitan area" and "central city," see the IPUMS household-record variable METAREA. For discussion of work status, see the IPUMS person-record variable EMPSTAT.

PWMET98 excludes all workers from the 1980 Urban/Rural sample and contains only about half of the workers contained in the State- and Metro-samples. The workers are classified differently depending on where they live and where they work.

See EMPSTAT and MIGSAMP for clarification of the universe statement.
