AHS 2021 Metropolitan Public Use File (PUF)

Microdata are files containing individual responses to survey questions. They are used to create custom tabulations, allowing users to delve further into the rich detail collected in the American Housing Survey. In the AHS microdata, the basic unit is an individual housing unit. Each record shows most of the information associated with a specific housing unit or individual, except for data items that could be used to personally identify that housing unit or individual.

The flat file is a dataset where the individual Public Use File datasets have been combined into a single dataset, with one record per housing unit
