I’m looking for individual data on weekly earnings. Under comparability it states “The Census Bureau reports that the resulting public use files for this data series included errors for years prior to 1990, so only data from 1990 forward are part of IPUMS-CPS.”
Where does the Census state this? I’ve browsed their documentation on historical comparability and haven’t found it. In previous questions on related subjects staff said alternately that they would get back on it, and in another related question the staff implied that there were no errors but IPUMS planned to add the data later (if I understand correctly).
Could you please help me sort this out? I’m sure many people are similarly confused.
