Net Migration of the Population by Age, Sex, and Race, 1950-1970 (ICPSR 8493)

This data collection includes estimates of net migration by age, race, and sex for United States counties for the periods 1950-1960 and 1960-1970. These estimates were developed primarily by the census-survival ratios forward method, and adjusted to be consistent with vital statistics by county. The files contain geographical identifiers such as state, division, region, county name and GEO code. Data on births according to sex and race are presented as well as total population by age groups, sex and race (white vs. nonwhite). Net migration estimates and net migration rates for each category are also included.

Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Created variable labels and/or value labels.
Original ICPSR Release: 1990-12-04
- 2016-05-11 SPSS, SAS, and Stata setup files, as well as SPSS and Stata system files, SAS transport (CPORT) files, tab-delimited data files and R data files have been added to the collection. The codebook was updated.
- 2006-01-18 File CB8493.ALL.PDF was removed from any previous datasets and flagged as a study-level file, so that it will accompany all downloads.
