Appendix A

CPS Sample Construction
This appendix provides information regarding the use of the Current Population Survey data set for the analyses in this book. The lessons learned might be useful to others creating successive cross-sections across many years using the CPS. The notes and recommendations reflect the experience of the author only.
1. The complete set of outgoing rotation groups from the CPS was obtained from Unicon Research Corporation (http://www.unicon.com). The outgoing rotation group in the CPS consists of individuals in their 4th and 8th month of eight monthly interviews. A CPS respondent is interviewed for four consecutive months, not interviewed for four months, then interviewed again for four consecutive months. This source is highly recommended for not only outgoing rotation groups, but for all of the CPS data sets one might want. The data arrive on CDs with easy-to-use extraction software. The documentation is excellent; the coding across years is consistent; technical support is accessible and helpful; and the documentation also makes note of known data anomalies or errors. Unicon makes these data available for a fee.
2. The March supplemental files for each year were obtained from the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), . We identified tremendous (un-correctable) problems with the 1994 March CPS obtained from ICPSR and ultimately obtained the data needed for 1994 from Unicon.
3. A variable of crucial importance to the analyses in this book is the indicator of disability status. That indicator is not available in the CPS public use file between 1981 and 1987; we contracted with the Census Bureau to extract the necessary variable and individual identifiers essential for matching with the rest of the CPS file for those years.
4. Creation of the CPS data sets for each year required matching individuals in each of the outgoing rotation groups from March, April, May, and June with the supplemental questionnaire in March. The match rate was approximately 90 percent for each month, except March, where the match rate, of course, was 100 percent.
5. The coding of the variable in the March supplement indicating whether an individual worked last year changed over the entire time period. Although this coding change is well documented, it could confound analyses if the difference is not noticed. Specifically, for 1981—1987, a "1” indicates that the
