The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Policy Development and Research contracted with Abt Associates, Inc, Inc. to develop a revised Codebook for the American Housing Survey (AHS) to accompany the release of the public use files (PUFs) from the AHS surveys.
Updated versions of this Codebook will continue to be released as the AHS is further modified and as more effective ways of presenting current information are found. For such purposes, feedback on the Codebook’s use is both welcomed and appreciated.
This Codebook shows what information is available on each computer tape. You can start by using the subject headings in the Table of Contents, by browsing through the sample questionnaire, or by using the quick indexes at the back of the book. The computer file contains raw data from each interview ("microdata"), which can be added up using the variable weight to prepare new findings not availble in the published books. The record layout shows which columns of each record contain each question. The main body of this book shows the codes present in each question each year.
