PUMD Data Files


From 1996 forward, 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.

Pre-1996 PUMD are available as Comma Delimited files. The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research" (ICPSR) provides the data for free to its members. Here is their member list. BLS also sells the data on USB flash drives (PDF).

If you are new to CE PUMD data, you may want to review the Getting Started Guide (PDF). Additionally, we supply training programs and sample data (ZIP). Please see the instructions on how to download zip files.

To be notified when new datasets become available, please sign up for the CEX e-mail updates. If you have comments, suggestions, and questions about this page and its contents, please contact us.
