I am having trouble compiling data tables from the IPUMS data base. I need data tables for USA state-level demographic characteristics for the youth population over the years 1994-2012 that I can input into programmes such as Stata and SPSS. I am looking for individual state and year data on ‘proportion of children living under the poverty line’, ‘proportion of children that are hispanic’, ‘proportion of children that are black’, ‘proportion of population aged 12-17’, ‘Proportion of children who are male/female’ and ‘proportion of children in one parent households’.
I am a student in the UK and require the data for my dissertation but am struggling to navigate the website and access the data I need. Is anyone able to help me compile the data or suggest resources that could be helpful?
Thank you very much for your help in advance,
