MST5STR
State of residence 5 years ago, alphabetic string

Description

MST5STR contains the original alphabetic string entry for the state where the respondent lived 5 years ago. Most users will want to use MIGPLAC5 as it contains coded information for state and country of residence 5 years ago. In the 1940 1% sample, users should be aware that the coded migration variables contain place information only for records that met the Census Bureau's confidentiality requirements when the 1940 PUMS was constructed. MST5STR, however, contains county information for all records that had an entry in the original data, which is about 3% more cases than MIGPLAC5 identifies.
