2000 5% Census, ACS and PRCS Birthplace Codes

(Go Back to Variable Appendices Index)

Due to confidentiality constraints in the construction of the 2000 5% sample, the ACS and the PRCS samples, any category in those samples representing fewer than 10,000 people was combined with a larger, more generalized category. As a result, the birthplace variable (BPL) contained significantly less detail in these samples than did the birthplace variable in other modern census samples. For this reason, some IPUMS labels are slightly inaccurate for the 2000 5%, ACS and PRCS samples.

The page shows each IPUMS birthplace category and its meaning in the 2000 5%, ACS and PRCS samples. Some categories, such as IPUMS code 12010 (Johnston Atoll), were not specifically identified in the 2000 5%, ACS and PRCS samples. The spreadsheet below identifies the larger categories into which all such groups were placed in these samples. Other categories contain more ancestry groups in the 2000 5%, ACS and PRCS samples than the IPUMS labels suggest. For instance, IPUMS code 43600 (Portugal) actually includes the Madeira Islands in the 2000 5%, ACS and the PRCS samples. All such combinations are identified below.
