Summary
This data collection is comprised of responses from two sets of survey questionnaires, the basic Current Population Survey (CPS) and a survey on the topic of immigration and emigration, which was administered as a supplement to the August 2008 CPS questionnaire.The CPS, administered monthly, is a labor force survey providing current estimates of the economic status and activities of the population of the United States. Specifically, the CPS provides estimates of total employment (both farm and nonfarm), nonfarm self-employed persons, domestics, and unpaid helpers in nonfarm family enterprises, wage and salaried employees, and estimates of total unemployment. Data from the CPS are provided for the week prior to the survey.The August 2008 supplement questions were asked of all household members interviewed in the basic CPS. The supplemental questions collected information on contemporary migration patterns, such as multiple years of entry to and emigration from the United States, time spent living outside the United States, and money sent and received from family and friends living outside the United States.Demographic variables include age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, occupation, and income
