PWURBTYP
Place of work: urbanized area

Description

PWURBTYP reports whether the respondent's primary workplace was located in the central city of an urbanized area (a densely-settled concentration of 50,000+ inhabitants) and, if so, whether that workplace was located in the central city's central business district. See the household-record variable URBTYPE for a detailed definition of "urbanized area."

In 1980, responses to questions about workplace location were coded for only half the respondents included in the IPUMS. Such cases provide accurate proportional distributions but not correct absolute numbers for the population as a whole. To generate accurate absolute numbers, users should select cases coded as 2 in MIGSAMP and multiply by 2 as well as by PERWT.
