I know that the 1940 census recorded address and I’m hoping to use this information. Right now with the IPUMS interface I can only get down to the city level.
Is it possible to get more granular geographical information (e.g., address) from the 1940 full sample census?
At this time the smallest unit of geography available for the 1940 full-count data available on IPUMS-USA is city. Eventually the data will be geocoded, but since this is being done with a grant at a different university, there is no current estimate of when it will be completed.
If addresses are necessary for your research, IPUMS-USA will be offering restricted access to the internal files containing variables like street names to a limited number of researchers. For more information about the application process, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
