CPS ASEC Bridge File

Hi! Apparently, the Census has released a modified version of the Current Population Survey (CPS) Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC) file. This file is called the "Bridge Data File." It uses some updated questions and imputation methods which produce some very different results than the regular file. It can be downloaded here.

Is there a way to use IPUMS to query the CPS ASEC Bridge file?


Currently the ASEC bridge files are not available via IPUMS. The IPUMS CPS team is exploring methods of eventually making these files available, but it will not be ready in the near future.
