Provides guidance for understanding and using eight program files compiled in the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment (HASE). HASE was conducted to test the effectiveness of direct cash allowances to help low-income households maintain decent housing. From 1974 through 1979, HASE supervised a housing allowance program in Brown County, Wisconsin, and St. Joseph County, Indiana. The program files--four for each site--contain administrative data gathered over the period on clients' household characteristics, the features and quality of their housing, and their transactions with the allowance program. This volume describes file contents and structure and advises on the analytic uses of each file. An annotated bibliography and variable indexes are included. HASE files are accessible through the Housing Research Data Center, operated by Data Use and Access Laboratories (DUALabs), Arlington, Virginia.
