Annual housing survey, 1981 [United States] national file by United States ( )
in Undetermined and English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Annual Housing Surveys are comprised of two major data collections for each year: the first, a national sample of housing units, and the second, a sample of housing units in each of roughly 15-20 SMSAs per year. The national data is released by the Census Bureau in two forms: the National Core file and the National Core and Supplement. Also, in addition to the primary SMSA file, specific transportation data by SMSAs is available in the Travel-to-Work files. Complete descriptions of these four files follows. For all Annual Housing Surveys, data are collected on whether the housing units have kitchens, heating units, and electrical systems and, if so, how well these work. Information on the costs incurred for mortgage payments, real estate taxes, property insurance, utilities, and garbage collection allow comparisons of housing costs from one year to another or between geographic areas. Data collected on income can be used in conjunction with annual housing expenditures to estimate the average percentage of families' and primary individual's incomes which is spent on housing. Households which have moved in the 12 months prior to enumeration are asked to provide comparative information on the current and previous residences of household heads

Continuation of Services Funded Under Title III of the Older Americans Act of 1965 by Mark C Wozny ( )
in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection examines the fates of services funded under Title III of the Older Americans Act if and when that source of funding is terminated. The main objectives of the study were to investigate the pattern of continuation of projects funded under the Title III program, and the importance of various factors contributing to the continuation of Title III projects. Members of State agencies, area agencies and service providers in representative planning and service areas were interviewed. The study examines the extent to which projects actually had their Title III funds terminated, the providers' responses to termination, the actions precipitated by continuation at reduced levels, the extent of budgetary reductions, the impact of Title III funding termination on client group composition, and the effects of project types and services on project continuation. The study was funded by the Administration on Aging under Grant No. 90-A-1301. A total of 426 organizations that had received Title III funds were interviewed. The study covered 33 Planning and Service areas in 24 States and represented all ten Federal regions
