Characteristics of Low-Wage Workers and Their Labor Market Experiences: Evidence from the Mid- to Late 1990s. Data


The 1996 SIPP is a large, multipanel, longitudinal survey that collected demographic and socioeconomic information on a nationally representative sample of U.S. households. The data cover the period from late 1995 to early 2000. SIPP provides detailed monthly measures on labor force participation (for those age 15 and older), income, participation in public programs, and household composition. Our study also used data from several SIPP topical modules that contain information on supplemental topics and on sample members' experiences before the beginning of the panel period. Finally, the SIPP data were supplemented with state-level data on the economic conditions and poverty levels in the states.
