This page, organized by subject, contains links to various database tools that allow you to retrieve historical data series from the Current Population Survey (CPS), or household survey.
Some of the database access tools use a layout similar to those in published tables. Others use a step-by-step selection menu. Those labeled "Most requested" provide quick, two-click access to selected series.
Note that once historical data series have been retrieved, the format can be customized by selecting "More Formatting Options" in the upper right portion of the screen.
You can browse published data tables, news releases, reports, and other information about these subjects using the CPS topics A to Z index.
