Panelists will provide an overview and introduction to using the Integrated Public Use Microdata Samples Series database (IPUMS). The IPUMS-USA data files include 150 years of harmonized U.S. Census data, and a parallel international web site provides integrated data from seven countries. The session will focus on the U.S. data. In addition to demonstrating the interface, panelists will discuss the strengths and limitations of the data series, new 2000 variables, common user problems and questions, and plans for future improvements. Handouts will be provided, and discussion from new and established IPUMS data users is invited.
