This project expands the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS) by adding demographic and geographic data describing the entire enumerated population of the U.S. from 1790-1930. The project provides data on the characteristics of over 600 million persons, quadrupling the quantity of U.S. census microdata available for scientific research. The data cover entire populations with full geographic detail, providing contextual information on neighborhood characteristics, including ethnic composition, demographic behavior, and population mobility.
