The IPUMS-CPS (Integrated Public Use Microdata Series –Current Population Survey), ATUS-X (American Time Use Survey Extract System), and IPUMS-SESTAT are microdata dissemination projects of the Minnesota Population Center (MPC). The IPUMS-CPS data project was recently expanded and now includes the March Annual Social and Economic Supplement data from 1962 to 2014 and CPS Basic Monthly Samples from 1989 to 2013. In addition to the Basic Monthly data, 13 supplements including the food security, veterans, fertility, tobacco use, and voter are currently available. The ATUS-X contains annual time diary data from 2003-2014, and includes newly available health and well-being data. IPUMS-SESTAT is a new project to make information about college graduates in the United States more easily accessible and includes data since 1993. All MPC Data are harmonized for consistency across time, fully documented, and easily accessible online for the research community.This is a hands-on session that will introduce participants to IPUMS-CPS, ATUS-X, and IPUMS-SESTAT with an overview the data available and topics of interest to research covered by these data. The presenters will lead attendees through a series of exercises to learn how to obtain the data, access the web-based documentation and metadata, and use the data in basic analyses.
