April monthly CPS

5/23/23, 3:21 PM - When is the monthly April 2023 CPS going to be available for download?

Basic Monthly CPS data are typically published by the Census Bureau within 7-10 days of the monthly Employment Situation Report (schedule here). The IPUMS CPS team works to integrate newly released microdata as quickly as possible. For basic monthly surveys, this typically ranges from a few days to a few weeks after the source microdata are published. The release of the April 2023 BMS data is a bit delayed as we work on how to handle changes introduced by the Census Bureau to earnings variables. The IPUMS CPS team hopes to have the data up in the next week or so. We will promptly post news about the release to the IPUMS CPS revision history page and announce this via Twitter as well.
