New Veterans and Child Support supplement data are available via IPUMS CPS. If you missed the CPS linking workshop, you can find all of the materials online. If you're curious about what months of CPS can be linked together or what supplements can be used in tandem, check out our CPS linking tool.
IPUMS DHS released new data for Uganda 2016, as well as biometric variables for women from individual recode files.
The 2017 NHIS data are now available. We added more than 1,500 new integrated variables, available via IPUMS NHIS.
2017 American Time Use Survey data are now available via ATUS-X. It's about time.
June 24, 2018. Researchers will be introduced to the study’s purposes, new design, instruments, and data structure. The training will also focus on analyses of FACES data over time, including methodological, measurement, and analytic considerations.
Theworkshopis free!Space is limited and you must be registered for the NRCEC to apply. Researchers interested in using FACES data to answer policy relevant questions in early care and education are encouraged to apply. Be sure to include your key research interest topics along with any previous experience working with FACES data when applying.
The ICPSR Summer Program would like to announce the following workshop, sponsored by the Panel Study of Income Dynamics:
PSID Data User Training Workshop
June 11-15, 2018, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
This five-day workshop will orient participants to the content and structure of the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, its special topics modules, and the PSID Child Development Supplement and PSID Transition into Adulthood Supplement. The workshop pairs morning instructional sessions led by experienced PSID researchers and staff with afternoon guided lab sessions in which users construct their own analytic data files.
Admitted graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and junior faculty or researchers may request to be considered for a stipend to help with travel and housing costs. All applications received byApril 13will be given priority for enrollment.
2018 ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research
The ICPSR Summer Program provides basic and advanced instruction across a wide range of methodologies and techniques for research in the social, behavioral, and health sciences. Our courses emphasize the integration of methodological strategies with the theoretical and practical concerns that arise in research on substantive issues.
In 2018, the ICPSR Summer Program is offering more than 80 courses in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and other cities across the US, Canada, and Europe. To view our full schedule and register, visitwww.icpsr.umich.edu/sumprog
An immersive learning experience unlike anything else, our four-week sessions allow you to focus on developing new methodological tools while building a community of friends, collaborators, mentors, and future colleagues. Our four-week courses cover introductory, intermediary, and advanced instruction in almost every area of methodology. Our four-week sessions also feature supplemental lectures and talks on important professional topics, such as data reproducibility, research transparency, and methodological issues related to the study of race, ethnicity, and gender. Our four-week sessions take place in Ann Arbor, Michigan; in 2018, the First Session runs fromJune 25 to July 20, and the Second Session runs fromJuly 23 to August 17.
For those wanting to learn a specific methodological technique in just a few days, the ICPSR Summer Program will offer more than 40 short workshops from May through August in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and other cities around the world. The 2018 short workshop schedule includes a wide range of courses, from introductory-level material to advanced, cutting-edge statistical techniques, as well as workshops on strategies for reproducing research results, machine learning, qualitative research methods, and the R statistical computing environment.
ICPSR scholarships provide a registration fee waiver for the Summer Program’s four-week sessions. The application deadline for all 2018 ICPSR scholarships isSaturday, March 31, 2018.
While Python may be the most commonly used tool overall, more Statisticians report using R.
On average, data scientists are around 30 years old, but this value varies between countries. For instance, the average respondent from India was about 9 years younger than the average respondent from Australia.
The highest percentage of our respondents obtained a Master’s degree, but those in the highest salary ranges ($150K+) are slightly more likely to have a doctoral degree.

IPUMS RESEARCH AWARDS
We are pleased to announce the 10th annual IPUMS Research Awards competition. We are looking for papers that use innovative approaches, comparative analyses, and multiple IPUMS datasets. In short, we are looking for papers that use the data to its full potential.
The IPUMS Spatial award, for work using NHGIS or IPUMS Terra, is new this year, joining awards for best papers using IPUMS USA or CPS, International or NAPP, and the National Health Interview Series data from IPUMS Health Surveys. Cash prizes will be awarded for best published work and best graduate student work (published or unpublished) in the four categories, for a total of 8 awards.
Deadline for submission is March 1, 2018. For more information on eligibility and the submission process, visit the IPUMS Research Awards page.
TIME USE CONFERENCE
Conference on Time Use Across the Lifecourse, June 19-20 2018, University of Maryland College Park
Researchers are invited to submit abstracts for papers that address the collection or analysis of time use data on topics ranging from intergenerational caregiving and time transfers, policy & environmental influences on time use, time use & health, time use & inequality.
The deadline for submission is February 9, 2018. Authors will be notified by March 30, 2018.
IPUMS is accepting applications for the IPUMS CPS Summer Data Workshop. The workshop will familiarize researchers with the under-utilized panel component of the Current Population Survey (CPS). The CPS is an ongoing labor force survey in the U.S. Data are available annually back to 1962 with monthly data available since 1976. The 2018 IPUMS CPS Workshop is targeted toward graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and early-career faculty from social science disciplines. The workshop will include presentations from the research team that developed IPUMS CPS and other experienced CPS researchers, lab sessions that provide hands-on experience with using the CPS as a longitudinal dataset, and small-group sessions where participants will discuss their own CPS research ideas with others who have similar interests.
The ICPSR Summer Program provides rigorous, hands-on training in statistical techniques and quantitative research methodologies used in the social, behavioral, and medical sciences. We strive to fulfill the needs of researchers throughout their careers by offering a broad curriculum that ranges from introductory statistics and data analysis to advanced methods and cutting-edge techniques.
From May through August 2018, we will offer more than 80 courses in cities across the U.S. We will announce our 2018 schedule in January, and registration for all courses will open in early February.
