In each file, the first column gives the year and the second column gives the age. The remaining columns have headings that display the gender and marital status.
Note that the beginning-of-year files and the end-of-year files contain the same data, other than that the years are offset by 1. For example, the January 1, 1941, data in the beginning-of-year file is the same as the December 31, 1940, data in the end-of-year file.
