Abstract

IPUMS-International is the world's largest collection of high-precision census data samples containing individual-level information on 544 million people in 74 countries spanning five decades. These data are available for download at no cost to educators, students and researchers for scholarly, educational, and policy-related analysis. The database, built in cooperation with national statistical offices, provides remarkable access to data for educators wishing to expose students to real-world governmental statistics. Variables with distinct census responses for each person are coded consistently across time and place; documentation is thorough, harmonized and easily accessible; and the web delivery system allows registered users to create and download customized data sets pooled across time and place. Individual level responses mean that data can be used in analyses that range from simple descriptive tables to advanced statistical modeling.
