Abstract : The report contains the second in a series of reports describing a model of social mobility that provides researchers with information on patterns of movement, projections of an existing population, and the impact produced by changes in rates of movement. Intended for the programmer/analyst, this report documents the specifications for generating the state numbers defined for the model and for using the set of FORTRAN subroutines that make up the flow model program package. The report provides summary information on the format of core arrays and tape records and the identification of data sets. The subroutine specifications cover these items: subroutine name, operation, argument list, calling-program dimension requirements, input/output files, control cards, and definitions and programming considerations.
