Do you have a plan to release earlier Contingent worker supplement data (1995 & 2005)?

#1

You said that you are not sure about the timing when Contingent worker supplement data (1995, 2005, & 2017) will be added to CPS IPUMS. Then, do you have a plan to release earlier Contingent worker supplement data (1995 & 2005) before 2017 survey will be available?

Thank you!

We do not currently have a plan to release the early (1995 and 2005) versions of the contingent worker supplement before the 2017 survey. The reason being that the biggest unknown in all of this is the extent to which the 2017 data will be comparable with the 1995 and 2005 data. Since one of the primary objectives of IPUMS CPS is to harmonize data over time, we will likely wait until we have seen the 2017 codebook to begin working on preparing this data for release on IPUMS CPS.
