Corrections to documentation for ACS Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) Data Dictionaries

Component ID: #ti685354017

The Data Dictionaries for the 2009 1-year, 2007-2009 3-year, 2005-2009 5-year, 2008-2010 3-year, and 2006-2010 5-year PUMS files contained the minimum value of -9,999 for variable SEMP (self-employment income) and the correct value should be -10,000. The affected Data Dictionaries have been corrected.

The Data Dictionaries for the 2007 1-year and 2005-2007 3-year PUMS files contained the maximum value of 9,999 for variable INSP (fire/hazard/flood insurance) and the correct value should be 10,000. The affected Data Dictionaries have been corrected.

The corrected Data Dictionaries are being released on a rolling basis along with the 2011 ACS 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year PUMS.
