I need PUMA level data for 2002, 2005, 2008 in NYC to pair with a NYC HVS analysis that I’m doing. ACS data doesn’t have it for 2002 or 2005. So, I was thinking of using IPUMS USA data. Could I sum the counts and then weight them to be representative of the PUMAs in NYC?
If so, any help would be appreacited.
