full sample for March 2014 CPS in IPUMS?

Will the full microdata sample from the March 2014 CPS (ASEC) become available on IPUMS or elsewhere? I believe the CPS has only released the 5/8 sample and that is what is available on IPUMS, but Census is publishing summary topical tables using the entire sample.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Staff Answer




The 2014 ASEC has a split-design structure with two separate sets of income-related questions. You are correct that IPUMS-CPS currently provides only the 5/8 of the sample (approximately 68,000 households) who received income questions like 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 will be available by this summer.

Hope this helps.
