Nonparametric Comparisons of Current Population Survey Panel Estimates


The Current Population Survey (CPS) is a monthly household survey of about 60,000 housing units conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau and jointly sponsored with the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The CPS is the source of important labor force data for the civilian noninstitutional population, including the national unemployment rate, a key economic indicator. Data is provided on participation in the labor force (employment and unemployment), earnings and wages, and a variety of related issues. Basic demographic detail is published by race, ethnicity, gender, and age. Data can be summarized by other geographic (e.g., state), economic, and demographic variables.
