In other words, all columns present in the  (confidential, Census-RDC only) LBD datasets are also present on this synthetic dataset, with the exact same specifications (variable type, length, etc.). Of course, only the variables with synthetic content have any content at all - the rest are empty.
SAS and Stata version of these files are available on the SDS at
