Census 2000 5-percent Public Use Microdata Sample data

SAS dataset for Washington

The Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) file for Washington State Census 2000 data contain individual records of the characteristics for a 5 percent sample of people and housing units. The PUMS data are available for geographic units known as super-Public Use Microdata Areas (super-PUMAs) and Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs). Each super-PUMA contains a minimum population of 400,000 and each PUMA contains a minimum population threshold of 100,000.

The Census 2000 5 Percent PUMS data file will unzip three files:

  • waprecs5.sas7bdat - person records
  • wahrecs5.sas7bdat - household records
  • wa5.sas7bvew - a view file for combining the person and the household records

A list of variables contained in the PUMS files is available.
