This Note was the final report in a series describing the data management system to be used for acquiring, cleaning, storing, organizing, and retrieving data for analysis in the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment. It focused on the details of the system design, programming implementation, file structures, and system operations. It also showed how the various components of the system--computer programs, procedures, and operations--were intended to perform the data processing tasks effectively. Three stages were projected for the system's implementation: (1) construction of an initial version to process baseline data only; (2) expansion of the initial system to include the processing of postbaseline and allowance program data; and (3) creation of a final version that eliminates most manual procedures.
