An error was found in the release of the public-use Interview Expenditure (EXPN) files, affecting data from 2001 through 2007. Due to an error in processing, select records are missing from the FRB01-FRB07 and UTP07 files. Note that the corresponding UCCs and expenditure amounts in the MTBI files were not affected by this error. For more information read the full erratum notice (PDF).
