Covid variables in IPUMS for December 2020


I noticed that the BLS provides covid/telework statistics for December 2020 [Table (XLSX) for Latest month], however the associated covid variables are only available until November 2020 in IPUMS. IPUMS CPS: descr: COVIDTELEW

Will IPUMS get access to these covid-related variables soon?



The COVID-19 microdata for Dec. 2020 have not yet been released by the Census Bureau (see this page). Once they are released, IPUMS CPS will integrate them as quickly as possible.
