Thanks for the effort in putting IPUMS together. It is a great resource for the research community.
Our current work utilizes data from a variety of IPUMS data sources, including data derived from the full count (100% sample) census datasets.
We would like to provide readers of our paper with a convenient means of recreating our results directly from the raw data.
Currently, we provide a README along with our code that guides the end-user with stepping through the IPUMS interface to recreate our data extracts. However, this is a somewhat tedious process that introduces the potential for errors/confusion.
Question: Is there a means of recreating a query based on a script (for example, uploading a YAML file) and/or recreating a query based on a stable URL? Ideally, we would be able to provide researchers aiming to replicate our results with a single script, control file, and/or URL that they could then use to download the data from IPUMS.
