bd CPS version 0.4 released

Version 0.4 of my notebooks for cleaning up and working with Current Population Survey public use microdata is available on GitHub. Several new variables were added, including the COVID-19 supplement questions, and several bugs were fixed. If you want to work with many months of CPS data in python, the code from these notebooks will likely be helpful. If you run the files locally and have trouble, please send me an email and I’ll try to help.

I’m still looking for a way to host the actual data files from this project. Each annual file is about 75mb after compression. Any suggestions are welcome.

As always, please contact me ( if you find any errors or have any questions.
