Richard O'Reilly, director of computer analysis for the Los Angeles Times, writes about a little known dataset the Census Bureau produces -- the Public Use Microdata Sample or PUMS. "PUMS is the next best thing to raw census data itself. It is the answers to each of the long form questions for each member of a housing unit." O'Reilly explains the benefits -- and pitfalls -- associated with using PUMS data.
