It’s that time of year again: IPUMS International data release season! This year’s release includes new 20% samples for all current Brazil data sets, additional samples for Cambodia, Fiji, and Nepal, new samples for Guatemala, Laos, Russia, and Togo, and Labor Force Survey samples for Spain and Italy. All of these new samples and all current data can be accessed at international.ipums.org.
Have you ever wanted to include a Current Population Survey (CPS) variable in your analysis that isn’t available in IPUMS CPS? Maybe you have even gone through the drudgery of merging original CPS data onto your IPUMS CPS extract. Well, no more! IPUMS CPS is now offering original basic monthly CPS data as unharmonized variables to save you the trouble. And we’re not stopping there — ASEC and topical supplement unharmonized variables are in the pipeline!
This past month, the IPUMS Time Use team attended the International Association for Time Use Research (IATUR) meetings, which were held in Washington, DC from July 10-12. The meetings were engaging and inspiring, and there were many papers featuring IPUMS Time Use data. We love seeing our data being used! This blog post features some of the research that was powered by IPUMS.
