One of a series archiving housing allowance office (HAO) materials used in the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment, this codebook documents the HAO housing characteristics file for Site II (St. Joseph County, Indiana) during the first five years of the experimental housing allowance program (December 1974 to January 1980). The file contains data on 58,335 housing evaluations performed for the 16,126 households that enrolled during that period. The codebook describes each variable on the file, reproduces the relevant part of the administrative forms, specifies all permissible entries, and annotates each variable with a complete definition. "Marginals" (actual frequency responses) are tabulated.
