Covid question availability for recent months

CPS Monthly data are available for October and November 2021 but the Covid-related questions don’t seem to be (they are for earlier months). Has the Census Bureau not yet released these data (they have published summary tables)? Or maybe there are issues with the data which are holding up their processing?

Thank you.

The Census Bureau experienced a backlog and only just recently released the October and November Covid-related questions. IPUMS CPS plans to publish this data in their January 2021 release together with December basic monthly survey data. This typically occurs towards the middle of the month and will depend on when the Census Bureau releases the December 2021 basic monthly data. You can follow updates on the IPUMS twitter as well as on the revision history page.

Thank you. I’ve been trying to figure out how to link the Census Bureau covid files with their monthly data but so far have not been able to find a common ID.
