Abstract

This is a report on computer programming undertaken to preprocess the 1960-1970 U. S. census public use samples to increase their accessibility. This includes wholesale recording into positive integers from 1 to N, with 0 reserved for "not applicable", combining household and person records, sorting records into ten 1/10,000 samples, compacting binary codes to fit on a single reel of tape, and the production of a revised set of formatted tapes.
