I'm working with the 1980 PUMS. I just want to make sure I understand the coding of age. Does the age variable refer to the person's age on Dec 31, 1980. If not, what exactly does it measure?

AGE gives the person’s age in years as of their last birthday prior to or on the day of enumeration. With the 1980 Census, date of enumeration is April 1, 1980.
