I’m replicating a paper that uses the 1980 5% Census sample, I see in the errata and revisions page that there have been changes to that sample since 1999 (when the paper I’m replicating was published). Is there a way to get previous versions of the same Census sample? Thanks
You can download the 2001 version of the 1980 5% file here. It does not appear that there were any major changes to the 1980 5% file between 1999 and 2001 so this file should match the one used in 1999.
I hope this helps.
