The 1980 Summary Tape File (STF3A) consists of over 1100 variables which contain demographic data from the Census of Population and Housing. Data files are included for 1980 mcd and tract levels. The file is located in:
directory path: /pub/census/usa/stf/xx/3xpt /xx_1980.zip (where xx represents the state postal codes), organized by state.
Refer to the contents .xx80 file for a description of the 1980 data.
Note: There are no Standard Extract files for this database because the boundary layers are not available or the entire U.S. is not covered. One could try to match these data on the 1980 mcd and tract (m8_ and t8_) boundary files located in /pub/census/usa/tiger/xx/bna_st, (where xx represents the state postal codes), organized by state.
