When will 2013 ACS microdata be released?


When do we expect 2013 ACS microdata to be released? I know 2012 data was pushed back a bit by the government shutdown last year.



The Census Bureau has not yet published their release schedule for the 2013 ACS PUMS, but generally the 1-year file is released in the fall, around the end of September. IPUMS-USA then processes the PUMS file and releases the concordant IPUMS data, usually within 2 or 3 weeks of the Census Bureau’s initial release.

I hope this helps.
