Question

Status:Open    Asked:Feb 12, 2016 - 03:30 PM

What is the problem with variable "weekly earnings" prior 1990?

I read in the documentation:


"The Census Bureau reports that the results in the CPS public use files for this data series included errors for years prior to 1990, so only data from 1990 forward are part of IPUMS-CPS"


I would like to know more about those errors.


Thank you!
