I am new to IPUMS and have been searching for answers regarding this issue but haven’t found any.
I am using STATA, and have downloaded the appropriate extract file (dat.gz) and the command do file as well, moving them both to my working directory folder.
When I attempt to open the dat.gz file, it says that the archive is empty (so there’s nothing to decompress).
When I downloaded the extract as a STATA formatted file (dta), all observations were 0.
Is anyone able to help me understand what I need to do to properly access my data here? And all help would be appreciated, thank you!
