Have there been any changes to the PUMS data since it has been released for 2019? I'm trying to figure out if I have an issue with user error or if the data itself has changed.
I downloaded state level data person-weighted POVPIP and AGEP data for PUMS 2019 1-year estimates from https://data.census.gov/mdat/#/ on October 27, October 30, and and November 5.
The downloads on October 27 and November 5 are the same. The data from October 30 is DIFFERENT. Any ideas? I did this process in tandem with another person, we both had these same results, and so are trying to figure out whether we both made the exact same errors or if there were any data release changes.
Thanks for any help!
I don't work for the Minnesota Data Center but based on the IPUMS revision page (https://usa.ipums.org/usa-action/revisions), it does not look like there was a revision to the data at that time. It would be worth emailing IPUMS to confirm this: firstname.lastname@example.org.
