Occasionally, PSID creates auxiliary data files that include special generated variables. These variables are not available in the Data Center.

TIME  FILE NAME
The purpose of this zip file is to provide a public release version of the Urban/Rural (Beale Code) that is accessible only via a restricted use contract. This truncated version collapses the two rural categories of the restricted Beale code variable (value 9 and 10) into one rural category while retaining the remaining distinctions.This zip file contains truncated Beale codes for the 1985-1997 waves. As we make other corrections to Family Files, truncated Beale codes will be added as a part of any future re-release and will then be available through the datacenter. The data consist of 110,302 records, one record for each family participating in the PSID from 1985-1997. The ZIP file contains a data file plus SAS, SPSS and Stata statements as well as a codebook.
