MIGMET1
Metropolitan area of residence 1 year ago

Description

MIGMET1 identifies the metropolitan area where the respondent lived 1 year prior to the survey date, if the prior residence was in an identifiable metropolitan area.

A metropolitan area, or metro area, is a region consisting of a large urban core together with surrounding communities that have a high degree of economic and social integration with the urban core. See METAREA for a detailed definition for each year.

For ACS and PRCS samples, MIGMET1 identifies no metro area codes for individuals who lived in the same residence 1 year ago.

In ACS and PRCS samples, MIGMET1 metro area designations are based on 1999 OMB delineations.

MIGMET5 provides analogous information for 1940 and 1980-2000 samples, using a 5-year rather than a 1-year reference period.

MIGMET1 is not available for 2012 and later ACS and PRCS samples. To obtain metro area codes for these samples, see the MIGMET131 variable.

Comparability

This variable is available for the 1950 Census and the 2005-2011 ACS and PRCS samples. This variable is conceptually comparable across years, but different definitions of metropolitan areas, sampling schemes, and confidentiality requirements introduce discontinuities across years and samples. See the Comparability information for the METAREA variable for a complete discussion of these issues.

In addition, there are universe differences between the 1950 Census and ACS/PRCS samples. The universe for ACS/PRCS samples excludes persons who lived in the same residence 1 year ago and those who lived abroad.

Universe

  • 1950: Sample-line persons age 1+.
  • ACS, PRCS: Persons age 1+ who were living in a different house in a U.S. metro area one year ago.
