Integrated Samples of Latin American Censuses (ICPSR 35983)

Principal Investigator(s): McCaa, Robert Edward, University of Minnesota


This project develops and supports a vast archive of large-scale microdata from over 100 censuses of 23 Latin American countries enumerated over the past half century. These data are a vital component of the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS). The project expands the database and adds data for four new countries, new 2010 round samples for countries currently in the database, and new higher-density versions of several existing samples.
