SAMEMET5
Lived same metropolitan area 5 years ago

Description

SAMEMET5 first classifies persons according to whether they currently lived in a metropolitan area and then sorts these groups according to residence inside or outside a metropolitan area five years ago. For persons living inside a metropolitan area at both points in time, SAMEMET5 reports whether their current and past metropolitan area of residence was the same. Metropolitan areas consist of a large central city and surrounding economically-integrated counties; see METAREA for a detailed definition.

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.

Comparability

This variable is essentially comparable across years, though the definition of a metropolitan area was slightly different in 1940 than in 1980. SAMEMET1 provides analogous information for sample-line persons in 1950, using a one-year rather than a five-year reference period.

Universe

  • 1940: Persons age 5+.
  • 1980: Persons age 5+; 50 percent of cases (see MIGSAMP); not available for Puerto Rico.
