Household Pulse Survey Phase 3.4 Monthly Data Release

Press Release Number CB22-TPS.48

MAY 18, 2022 — The U.S. Census Bureau today released new data from phase 3.4 of the experimental Household Pulse Survey (HPS). Phase 3.4 includes a new question on receipt/intention to receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster; modifications to questions relating to children’s vaccinations that expand response options to include children’s age categories; modified reference periods for school enrollment and spending questions; removal of an educational catch-up question; and a reinstated question related to distance learning. 

The HPS is an effort by the Census Bureau and other federal statistical agencies to provide near real-time data on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting people’s lives to inform federal and state response and recovery planning. The Census Bureau is set to release data from this phase March 23, April 20, and May 18, 2022.

HPS results are available on our website through the Household Pulse Survey Interactive Tool, detailed tables, and a public-use data file.
