A couple steps are necessary before STATA is able to read IPUMS data. First, you need to unzip the compressed data. I’m not sure what the default decompression software on your computer is, but we recommend 7-zip. Second, STATA needs to be told where to find your data by setting the working directory. To do this, go to File > Change Working Directory, and then select the location where your unzipped data is stored.
I hope this helps.
