A data frame with 478 persons on the following variables:

This population is a clustered population of 478 persons extracted from the September 1976 Current Population Survey (CPS) in the United States. The clusters are compact geographic areas used as one of the stages of sampling in the CPS and are typically composed of about 4 nearby households. The elements within clusters for this illustrative population are individual persons.
