IPUMS 2020 Decennial Census microdata


I am just wondering when IPUMS expects to make available the microdata from the USA 2020 Decennial Census (presumably the 10% sample)? Even a rough approximation of when this may be released would be helpful.

Thank you,


At this time, the Census Bureau has not yet decided if they will release a PUMS for the 2020 decennial data. It is worth noting that the Census Bureau announced sweeping changes to their disclosure control in public use data. A PUMS file for 2020 is not listed on the Census Bureau’s 2020 Data Products page currently, but I would encourage you to check their page as well as the IPUMS page on changes to Census Bureau data products (the first link) for updates.
