Consumer Expenditure Public-Use Microdata
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.
The following Interview Files were affected:
SAS (*.sas7bdat), SPSS (*.sav), STATA (*.dta), ASCII-comma-delimited (*.csv): for all quarters of all years, 1999-2004
Variables affected: 775$1353775$135&7727$/37727$/&
<HDU 775$1353 775$135&
