MULTYEAR
Actual year of survey, multi-year ACS/PRCS

Description

MULTYEAR identifies the actual year of survey in multi-year ACS/PRCS samples.

For example, the 3-year ACS and PRCS data files each include cases from three single-year files. For these multi-year samples, the YEAR variable identifies the last year of data (2007 for the 2005-2007 3-year data; 2008 for the 2006-2008 data; and so on). MULTYEAR gives the single-year sample from which the case was drawn (2005, 2006, or 2007 for the 2005-2007 3-year data; 2006, 2007, or 2008 for the 2006-2008 3-year data; and so on).
