New IPUMS Data
IPUMS USA has released one-year and five-year ACS and PRCS data, as well as household-level full count data for the years 1790-1840.
IPUMS Time Use now includes IPUMS family interrelationship variables, these variables deliver individual-level characteristics on activity records, and offers eldercare recipient records via the extract system.
IPUMS International will have a large data release this spring. The 24 samples in the upcoming release include data from new countries of Botswana, Poland, and Trinidad and Tobago as well as 2010-round data from many existing partners. This release will also include enhancements to the integrated geographic variables and associated shapefiles to facilitate cross-temporal spatial comparison and visualization.
IPUMS DHS is adding six newly-released samples and almost 3,000 new variables. New data include variables on pregnancy termination, childrearing, women’s work, marriage and sexuality, family planning, HIV, malaria, postpartum care, health care access, treatment of child fever/respiratory illness, and vaccinations.
