As a result of collaboration with Berkeley’s UC data staff, Ilona Einowski and Fred Gey, Counting California now has two new datasets:

  • Census of Population and Housing, 1980 [California] Summary Tape File 3
  • Census 1980 Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)

The Census of Population and Housing dataset contains 100 percent counts and unweighted sample counts of persons and housing units.  Population items tabulated for each person include demographic data and information on schooling, ethnicity, labor force status, and children, as well as details on occupation and income.  Housing items include the size and condition of the housing unit as well as information on value, age, water, sewage, heating, vehicles, and monthly owner costs.

The Census 1980 Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) dataset provides data on the workforce by detailed occupational category, cross-classified by race/ethnic origin, occupation by industry, earnings, educational attainment, and by age.  It contains two tables. Table 1 (Tab1) is detailed occupation (514 categories) by sex.  Table 2 (Tab2) is years of school completed by age and sex.  Both of these tables appear for 12 race/ethnic groups.

Search tip: From the advanced search page you can limit your search to particular dataset(s) or choose from the topics pull-down menu to search by assigned subject topic(s).

Coming soon: The 1970 2nd Count contains demographic items tabulated for each person including data on age, race, ethnicity, sex, marital status, family composition, and information on schooling, labor force status, and children, as well as details on occupation and income.
