Any update on release timing for the SHADAC health insurance units for the 2016 1-year ACS?


#1

In the 2008-2015 1-year ACS iPUMS-USA, there were variables constructed by SHADAC to identify health insurance units and their incomes (HIURULE, HIUID, etc). Will those variables be added to the 2016 1-year ACS, and is there any timeline for their release?

Thank you!

The HIU variables provided by SHADAC typically become available several months after the new ACS sample is released via IPUMS USA. We expect these variables to be available before spring 2018, however we do not have an estimated release date at this time.
