Integrated Samples of Latin American Censuses (ICPSR 34511)
Principal Investigator(s): McCaa, Robert Edward
A vast archive of raw census microdata covering Latin America in the period since 1960 survives in machine-readable form. Over the last several years a substantial portion of these data have been made available to researchers for the first time. The goal of this project was to complete work on an integrated database including samples of approximately 100 Latin American and Caribbean censuses. With 150 million records of public-access data spanning a fifty-year period, the new database will allow social scientists to make comparisons across Latin American nations during a period of transformative change.
These data are not available from ICPSR. Users should consult the data owners directly for details on obtaining these resources.
