Download IPUMS Samples

Samples of the United States population censuses of 1850-2010 are available via the IPUMS extract system. Users needing a complete dataset should register for the extract system and simply request all variables from any given year or years. Below we have provided links to IPUMS datasets that are not available via the extraction system.

Notes on uncompressing the sample files

IPUMS files are available only as compressed ASCII--various utilities are capable of uncompressing the files.
