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.

Please note:

  • The 2020 PUMD package currently only contains data from the 2nd and 3rd quarters of the Interview Survey and the 1st and 2nd quarters of the Diary Survey. Data for subsequent quarters and 2020 paradata will be published in September as part of our annual release.
  • PUMD are not available for 1982 or 1983.

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). Additionally, we supply training programs and sample data (ZIP) and host a free microdata data users' workshop.

Experimental State Weights for 2019, supporting state-level analysis for selected states, are also available with their documentation.

If you are having difficulty downloading the data, please see the instructions on how to download zip files.
