IPUMS-International: A Restricted Access Web-Site Providing Anonymized, Integrated Census Microdata for Social Science and Policy Research

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Census microdata are an invaluable resource for social science and policy research. Until recently National Statistical Institutes (NSI) permitted little use of these data. This paper describes the IPUMS-International project (www.ipums.org/international), a global collaboratory of NSIs to anonymize, harmonize and provide access on a restricted basis to extracts of integrated census microdata samples. Access is limited to bona fide 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 forty official census agencies have formally ratified the IPUMS-International protocols: Argentina, Austria, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Hungary, Israel, Kenya, Madagascar, Mexico, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Palestinian Authority, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Tajikistan, the United States, Turkmenistan, United Kingdom ,Venezuela, and Vietnam. National Statistical Institutes interested in additional information about the initiative are invited to contact Dr. Robert McCaa (rmccaa@umn.edu).
