An excellent source of secondary data

This is an excellent source of secondary data from the Census, the National Health Interview Study, the American Time Use Survey and other cool databases going back forever. It is all available in Stata-ready files, too.

Exciting changes are coming to NHGIS. Over the next week, we will be launching a new look for the site along with a new name: IPUMS NHGIS.

NHGIS has always been part of the IPUMS family of projects. NHGIS, like other IPUMS projects, provides census and survey data integrated across time and space. Our updates next week will bring NHGIS together with our other IPUMS projects to provide unique types of integrated data with a consistent look.

Don’t be confused by the new name and the new look: we’re still offering the same free data and data tools. Website navigation and the data finder remain the same.

If you have not used our other IPUMS projects, we recommend you visit the new We have made it easier to access all our data projects and to find video tutorials, online learning modules, and assistance from IPUMS staff. You will also find information on events and workshops, a blog feed, and social links to make it easier for you to stay connected with IPUMS.

We look forward to introducing you to the new IPUMS NHGIS, and all our new sites, and we welcome your feedback.
