PyCPS

A python package for working with the Current Population Survey.

Documentation is available at readthedocs.

Neither the Census Bureau nor the NBER provide a clean, RESTful API for getting CPS data. This makes working with the CPS a pain, and reproducibility nearly impossible.

What does it do?

There's a few related functions PyCPS provides:

  1. Downloading data dictionaries and monthly data files
  2. Standardizing variables across months
  3. Merging to create time series

Installation

  • From pip: pip install pycps

  • From source:

    git clone https://github.com/TomAugspurger/pycps
    cd pycps
    pip install .
    pip install -r requirements.txt
    pip install git+https://github.com/PyTables/PyTables
    python setup.py install
    

Dependencies

See requirements.txt

Python

Developed with python 3, aims to be compatible with python 2.
