Reading PUMS Data (Public Use Microdata Sample) from 1990 and 2000 with SAS, SPSS, or Stata

The SAS, SPSS, and Stata files were created by Jean Roth at the NBER to provide easier access to the 1990 and 2000 Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) data files.

Internal users can access the programs and data in a UNIX shell at /homes/data/PUMS,
or on an NBER PC at Network Neighborhood -> NBER -> home -> data -> PUMS
To download files in Internet Explorer, right click on them and select "Save Target As...".
