Sources. The data are primarily from the 1984–1996 Current Population Survey Outgoing Rotation Group File (ORG) and from the 1985–1997 March Current Population Survey (March). Restrictions. See Table II for sample restrictions. Notes. Means come from the ORG unless they are labeled (March). These means are calculated using the characteristics of the given sample for the given year and are weighted. Women are assumed to be in their rst four months of work, to have no unearned income, and to claim no child care expenses. Also, single women with and without children are assumed to le as head of household and single, respectively, and to claim the standard deduction. Taxes and welfare are adjusted for state cost of living differences. All dollar amounts are expressed in 1996 dollars per year. See Appendix 1 for specic indices used and other details.
