BLS research on worker flows using CPS

I was pointed to the following research from the BLS on measuring worker flows using the monthly CPS. Researchers have been doing this for a while now, with the main focus on the outgoing rotation groups. The matching process is not perfect but I have to believe that the folks at BLS have access to better matching keys than outside researchers.

It bothers me that this was kind of buried in the BLS website and that the matched micro data is not available for download. What if I were interested in transition rates by race, educational attainment, and age groups? Or geographic region?
