Comparability

This variable is largely comparable across years. In the 1910 US and Puerto Rican census samples and in the 1920 Puerto Rican Census, the maximum value of MICROSEQ is 4; in all other years and samples, 2 is the maximum number of sequences per microfilm.

MICROSEQ can be used in conjunction with REEL, PAGENO, and LINE to locate the case on a microfilmed version of the original census form. (See REEL for further information.)
