PUMD ERRATUM – Interview FMLI files

Consumer Expenditure Public-Use Microdata
Original Release: July 13, 2007  Updated: January 10, 2014

To users of the 1999 - 2004 Consumer Expenditure Public Use Microdata Files:

The FMLI files contain errors in calculating the travel summary expenditure variables TTRANPRP and TTRANPRC. Since these variables are components in the total summary expenditure variables TTOTALP and TTOTALC, these total summary expenditure variables were also affected by the error. NOTE: for 2004 only, these files have been corrected. However, for years 1999-2003 data users will need to make their own corrections.

FMLI file:

The following Interview Files were affected:

SAS (*.sas7bdat), SPSS (*.sav), STATA (*.dta), ASCII-comma-delimited (*.csv):  for all quarters of all years, 1999-2004
