Teaching with IPUMS
Classroom accounts. Registered IPUMS users can create classroom accounts that allow them to share data extracts with students through our website. Student registration is also streamlined.
Data usage exercises. These exercises are designed to familiarize users with the IPUMS metadata browsing system; provide tips for using the microdata; and guide users through the online tabulation system.
- Website metadata exercises.
- Data analysis (stata).
- Online data analysis.
- See the instructions or the video tutorial for more information about the tabulator.
