2018 ACS 1-year PUMS file release


Based on the Census’ website, it looks like the 2018 ACS 1-year PUMS file is slated to be released on November 14, 2019 (https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/news/data-releases/2018/release-schedule.html).

In a previous post on here, it looks like the turnaround from the Census release to the IPUMS release is typically about a month. Is that a correct sense of the timeline for the aforementioned file to be released this coming fall?

Thank you for your work and your help!

Yes, this expected turnaround time is the same this year. Outside of any unexpected delays, the IPUMS USA Team should have the 2018 ACS 1-year file out on IPUMS USA by the middle of December.

Thank you for your help!
