The GPI (Generalized Package Interface) strives to ease the task of the general user in applying programs against census and survey data. Specifically, the system addresses two design goals: 1) reducing the dependency of such generalized programming packages as the Census Bureau's Generalized Tabulation System, SPSS, DISSPLA, and P-STAT on a fixed data/file format, and 2) freeing the packages' users from the need to know the detailed structure of their data. To meet these goals, GPI comprises two main components, a customizer that tailors a package to access the user's specific data/file structure and a dictionary which describes that data/file structure.
