FAQ: README

Table or file contents

When you choose a data set, you often get a list of numbered tables or files to choose from. Often, you cannot tell what file contains your data by looking at the name of the file. In order to see what data is contained in these files, you must read the README file. For example, if you want data on consumption of pineapples, you need the data set called Food Consumption put out by ERS. But you will no know that data for pineapples is in Table 25 unless you read the README file.

Data Development and Interpretation

Often a subject-area data specialist will be identified in the README file. Questions concerning the development or interprentation of data sets should be addressed to this individual.
