IPUMS USA is now disseminating complete count data from 1850-1940, not including 1890. Hooray! But, but, but…you might ask…what happened to the 1890 Census?
We’re glad you asked.
In August, the IPUMS International team traveled to the International Statistical Institute World Statistics Congress 2019 (ISI-WSC) in Kuala Lumpur. In addition to the IPUMS exhibit booth and the hands-on workshop during the conference (from August 18-23), IPUMS International enjoyed facilitating several pre-conference activities.
As summer turns to fall, we look forward to changing leaves, hot cider, and a fresh crop of crisp new ASEC data! This year’s ASEC comes with many changes and improvements to family relationship, income, and health insurance data. So unpack your favorite sweater, fill your favorite mug with a warm beverage, and settle in for a run-down of the new and improved 2019 ASEC.
