CSV file format prevents Extract - ATHUS

When I select “csv” as the file type inside the cart, the system won’t let me Submit Extract. The button stops functioning. This is the only file format I can use. I’m not a database analyst or statistician.

The issue you are encountering is that you need to select at least one non-time use variable to include in your extract request (e.g., AGE) before you can submit the request. You would not be able to submit the request in a fixed width or Stata-formatted file either. I have made a note that we should make this stipulation clearer to Time Use users. I hope this helps. Please reach out to ipums@umn.edu if you still cannot submit an extract request after adding at least one person-level variable to your extract request.
