Data Submission Deadlines

As specified in Section 7.1 of the Quality Assurance Guidelines, survey vendors must submit files by 7:59 PM ET by the date associated with each submission deadline. Late submissions will not be accepted. The data submission site will open approximately one week prior to each interim data submission deadline and approximately one month prior to the final data submission deadline. Vendors must submit their data files in time to correct and re-submit any files that do not pass the validation checks.
