The Bureau of Labor Statistics will be ending its support of Anonymous FTP Service effective March 2014. The BLS FTP site
will be replaced by a HTTP site called Download.BLS
. The new HTTP site will host identical downloadable files available on the FTP site. To ensure a smooth transition, BLS FTP users are strongly recommended to update any automated scripts and begin using the new HTTP site as soon as possible. The FTP site
will be shut down on February 28, 2014.
The Census Bureau has revised the release dates for three and five-year American Community Survey estimates due to the recent lapse in federal funding. The 2010-2012 three-year estimates will be released on November 14, and the 2008-2012 five year estimates will be released on December 17.
