AGE grouping?

Select cases for AGE in the March 2015 ASEC shows this


I thought I would get AGE by single year until 99, but I just get by year until 79, then 80 and 85. Is this something IPUMS is doing to the CPS? Is there a way to get age data by single year until 99?

Thank you.


Beginning with the 2004 CPS, the Census Bureau codes 80-84 years of age as 80 and 85+ years of age as 85 (see A_AGE in the 2015 ASEC codebook). As a result, we are unable to provide single years of age beyond 79.

Sorry that I could not deliver better news.
