The California county data in the SPSS file cntysp.por is drawn from the Regional Economic Information System (REIS) and is produced by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). The REIS data base provides local area economic data for states, counties, and metropolitan areas for 1969 - 1995. In the data drawn from the REIS files, each variable has a 1970, 1980, and 1990 value. Variable names have the same root in each of the three years followed by either 70, 80, or 90, depending on the year. For example, the variable POP70 is county population in 1970, POP80 is county population in 1980, and POP90 is county population in 1990. All three, POP70, POP80, and POP90 are distinct and separate variables. NAME and CNTYCODE appear once in the dataset.

In the following variable list, every variable except NAME and CNTYCODE is listed by its root and "xx" to designate the year. Income variables are in thousands of dollars (current) and employment variables are the number employed.
