Public Use Microdata Sample from American Community Survey

Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) files are now also available from the American Community Survey (ACS) as well as from decennial censuses.

The American Community Survey is a new nationwide survey that will replace the decennial census long form in future censuses and is a critical element in the Census Bureauís reengineered 2010 census plan.

Questions about the PUMS data from the ACS should be directed to staff from the American Community Survey.
