Release Number CB15-TPS.91
Component ID: #ti480743715

The Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) files for the 2014 American Community Survey one-year statistics are now available for users to create their own tabulations. The files contain data on approximately 1 percent of the United States population while protecting the confidentiality of survey respondents.

Users can create tabulations through their own software or through the Census Bureau tool DataFerrett

The PUMS files can be accessed directly from <http://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/data/pums.html>.
