    Returns a random sample of 534 workers from the Current Population Survey (CPS) from 1985, including their wages and and other characteristics.

    var data = cps();
    // returns [{...},{...},...]

    Each array element has the following eleven fields:

    • education: number of years of education.
    • south: indicator variable for southern region (1 if a person lives in the South; 0 if a person does not live in the South).
    • gender: gender of the person.
    • experience: number of years of work experience.
    • union: indicator variable for union membership (1 if union member; 0 if not a union member).

    • age: age (in years).
    • race: ethnicity/race ('white', 'hispanic', and 'other').

    • sector: sector ('other', 'manufacturing', or 'construction').
    • married: marital status (0 if unmarried; 1 if married).

    Notes

    • Based on residual plots, wages were log-transformed to stabilize the variance.
