Changes to the ACS

We’ve made several changes to the CEPR extracts of the ACS. 

  • Added the 2010 data, which can be downloaded here.
  • Changed the industry and occupation variables ind_naics05, ind_naics08, ind_naics09, socp05, socp06, and socp10 to allow for comparisons across years. The change affects only the programming, not the data.
  • Corrected an error in ftfy, which identifies full-time, full year workers. 

Further details about all extract changes are at the bottom of the cepr_acs_master.do file, found with all updated program files here.
