1980 Ancestry Codes

(Back to Other Variable Appendices Index)

This page contains modified lists of ancestry categories from the 1980 samples along with their corresponding IPUMS ancestry codes. For each IPUMS code, these lists allow the user to identify all responses included in the ancestry grouping within each sample. The 1980 ancestry groupings, ordered by their original codes, are included in later in this section. See ANCESTR1 and ANCESTR2 in the IPUMS-98 Volume 1 User's Guide for more detail about the IPUMS ancestry variables.

Items in parentheses in the following list are responses which were not coded separately in the 1980 samples and do not appear in the codes and frequencies table of the ANCESTR1 variable.
