MIGTYP5E
Detailed urban/rural category residence 5 years ago

Description

MIGTYP5E reports the place type by Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA) size where the respondent lived 5 year ago. Calvin Beale and Glenn Fuguitt developed the coding scheme to distinguish urban and rural places within metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas (See G. Fuguitt, D. Brown, and C. Beale, Rural and Small Town America, New York: Russell Sage Foundation, 1989). The classification is divided by the size of the metropolitan area and the place population size within nonmetropolitan counties.

The classification delineates places within the 1980 Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs) by population sizes over 500,000, under 500,000, and nonmetropolitan areas outside the SMSA. (See METAREA for additional information about metropolitan areas.) Residents within SMSAs are divided into central city, places with more than 2,500 residents (urban areas), and places with less than 2,500 people (rural places). Residents outside of the SMSAs or in nonmetropolitan areas are divided by the size of the place population.

Responses to questions about migration in the 1980 census were coded for only half the persons included in the IPUMS. These codes provide accurate proportional distributions but not correct absolute numbers for the general population. For correct absolute numbers, users should select cases coded as 2 in MIGSAMP and multiply by 2 as well as by PERWT.
