Release of 2014 ASEC data

Dear IPUMS Staff,


I received an e-mail saying that the 2014 ASEC data had been released, but when I tried to download it I got an incomplete sample (only 139,415 individuals vs approximately 200,000 for other years).


Could you tell me why this is the case?


Thank you,


Vanda

The 2014 ASEC has a split-design structure with two separate sets of income-related questions. IPUMS-CPS currently provides only the 5/8 of the sample who received income questions similar to those that have previously been on the CPS. Data from the other 3/8 of the sample (approximately 30,000 households) with the redesigned income questions should be available this summer.


Hope this helps.
