Data gathering question


I am confused. For my class I have touse eviews to interpet my results. I would like to make data based on determing factors of females in the labor market. Some factors I would like to analize as independent varies are: living arrangements, Marriage, Single parents, unemployment rate, education level AS+, number of children in the house hold and cost of living in that state. Time Series. I have been using census data however I dont think I am utilizing the date properly. Professor will only help us once we gather the data.
