IPUMS-ASIA/PACIFIC: Synopsis of a Proposal

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Abstract. This paper describes a proposal for the Asia and Pacific Region to develop a restricted access web-site providing anonymized, integrated census microdata for social science and policy research. With funding by the U.S. National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health we propose to build on the successful IPUMS-International protocols www.ipums.org/international). This initiative is a global collaboratory in partnership with the Official Statistical Authority (OSA) in each member-state. Two region-wide efforts, one for Europe and the other for the Americas, are now underway with a total of 33 countries participating. In the Asia region, integrated census microdata for Vietnam first became available in May 2002 and China in 2003. Access to integrated microdata is restricted to bona fide university scientists with demonstrated research need who agree to abide by the conditions of use license. Custom-tailored extracts are delivered, at no charge via the Internet. At present more than forty official census agencies have formally ratified the IPUMS-International protocols. Statistical Agencies of the Asia and Pacific Area interested in joining a region-wide initiative are invited to contact Dr. Robert McCaa (rmccaa@umn.edu).
