Is there a target date for when the pre-1996 Job Tenure Supplement will be available?


I’m looking for the Job Tenure Supplement CPS data from prior to 1996 and I gather that these data are still being integrated into IPUMS-CPS. Can you give any guidance as to when the IPUMS team hopes to get those data available? Thanks very much for all of your work on this project.



There is no timeline to release the pre-1996 job tenure supplement samples. Although, given your interest in using these samples, we could make the pre-1996 job tenure supplements a priority for 2017.
