Getting the American Community Survey Data into SAS

Are there any resources out there on getting and querying the American Community Survey Data? I've tried following the instructions provided by the Census to run the macro without luck. 

 

Thanks,

The documentation and code from the survey documentation has been all I've ever used. However, you can search lexjansen.com to see if others have published more code for complex tasks.

Re: Getting the American Community Survey Data into SAS

Census offered a webinar a couple of weeks ago about using ACS PUMS files.  https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/guidance/training-presentations/acs-intro-pums.html has links for the recording, slides, and transcript.

 

The webinar mentioned the American Community Survey Data Users Group.  They have a forum for questions about using the files.  See https://acsdatacommunity.prb.org/acs-data-products--resources/acs-public-use-microdata-samples-pums/.
