Thanks to Chris Boyd for suggesting the creation of this page dedicated to syntax files for working with publicly available "standard" data files.

Please share your syntax files with the SPSS community!

  1. Data definition for Covered Employment and Wages ES-202.SPS (a zip file) with thanks to Chris Boyd
  1. US County FIPS Code Common Name Value Lables.SPS

    Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 6-4 provides the names and codes that represent the counties and other entities treated as equivalent legal and/or statistical subdivisions of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the possessions and freely associated areas of the United States. Counties are considered to be the "first-order
    subdivisions" of each State and statistically equivalent entity, regardless of their local designations (county, parish, borough, etc.). 
  1. US County FIPS Code to Common Name Recode.SPS

    This syntax adds the common name of counties to a data file using the five digit State/County FIPS Codes to make table building and general data management easier for those that don't have the FIPS codes memorized.
