Faster account approval

Hello IPUMS Team!!!

I’m a master’s student in Applied Statistics and Data Science and I just applied for access to the IPUMS international dataset but I was wondering if my account could receive faster approval given the fact that I need the data for my thesis? Thank you in advance!! :face_holding_back_tears:

Applications to access IPUMS International data are reviewed by our staff to ensure the proposed research projects are appropriate as per agreements with the original data providers. Account review and approval typically take about one week. I have requested expedited review of your application, but our staff are just returning from conference travel on behalf of IPUMS International, so expedited review may not be possible. Please send us an email at if you haven’t heard back about the status of your account by next Monday (June 10), and I will follow up with my colleague who reviews applications.
