Household Pulse Survey Public Use File (PUF)

Household Pulse Survey Public Use File (PUF)

Microdata files contain individual responses to survey questions. They can be used to create custom tabulations and allow users to delve further into the rich detail collected in the Household Pulse Survey (HPS). All weekly HPS microdata files are released two weeks after the Household Pulse Survey Data Tables.  

Each of the weekly releases include a Public Use Data File (PUF), a replicate weight data file, and a data dictionary.

Phase 3.5 PUF Releases

Household Pulse Survey PUF: July 27 - August 8

The Census Bureau started the Household Pulse Survey (HPS) as an experimental endeavor to provide near-real time data on how people's lives have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. To move the survey forward and learn from previous data collection cycles, the Census Bureau is taking steps to assess and strengthen the research design of this important project.   

One potential enhancement relates to how survey respondents are initially contacted. Beginning in Week 48 (July 27-August 8, 2022), the HPS began testing the utility of using a shortened URL in short-message service (SMS) text invitations for respondent contact. This approach allows for more SMS messages to be sent at reduced cost.   

In addition, to reduce both administrative cost and respondent burden, the HPS team is researching improvements in the email address frame to improve overall email deliverability and coverage.  The overall goal is to improve  email response by removing unused and  outdated email addresses that routinely bounce (are undeliverable) and use fewer, more effective email addresses to reach  respondents.
