PUMD Data Files
Public use microdata (PUMD) are available in four formats: SAS, SPSS, STATA and Comma Delimited (ASCII). Each format presents the data for each year in two zipped files. Data collected with the Interview Survey are in the “Interview” file and those with the Diary Survey are in the “Diary” file.
If you are new to the CE PUMD, you may want to explore the PUMD methodology with the CE PUMD Getting Started Guide and the availability of data with the Dictionary for Interview and Diary Surveys (XLSX). If you plan to use CE income data in your analysis, the User's Guide to Income Imputation in the CE provides important information to know before starting. Additionally, we supply training programs and sample data (ZIP) and host a free microdata data users' workshop.
If you are having difficulty downloading the data, please see the instructions on how to download zip files.
