MLP Linked Data User Guide

The MLP crosswalk files are designed to be used in combination with data extracts created from the IPUMS dissemination system. The basic model we envision is to build extracts for two adjacent census years and merge those data onto the crosswalk to create one linked dataset.

In the IPUMS extract system

If you intend to use a pre-existing data extract, ensure that you have the most recent version of the data by referring to the IPUMS USA revision history. Prospective users who are not familiar with the IPUMS data extract system can refer to these written instructions or video tutorials.
