Fertility, Mortality and Migration Records

Some IPUMS samples include separate data files documenting fertility, mortality or migration events in the period prior to the census. These data do not fit within the data structure of the IPUMS extracts, because they can include multiple observations per household or per woman. Researchers must download the files and link them to data from the IPUMS extract system.
