I have downloaded a dataset that included several “detailed” variables (such as bpld) from the ACS 5yr samples for 2015 and 2014. However, I need to add some variables, but when I went back to amend my sample not only could I no longer see the detailed variables, but the ones that I had previously downloaded were removed from my dataset (my variable count went from 61 to 46).
I’d greatly appreciated help with this. It is slightly annoying to have the pre-selected variables removed, but not too bad because I have them already. But I really do need the other detailed variables!
In case it is useful, the variables I am after but are not there are below. I know that they at least were in the ACS 5yr samples for 2014 and 2015 because I know someone else who has used them for analysis.
By the way this site is fantastic, so thank you.
