Looking for Guatemalan 1964-2002 censuses.


I need to access the data from the Guatemalan censuses from years 1964, 1973, 1981, 1994 and 2002 for an academic research project. I know from the World Microdata Inventory that the microdata data samples survive. However, they are not available from IPUMS. I have tried contacting the Guatemalan National Statistics Office to no avail.

Does anyone have an idea of how I could access these data?


Guatemala is participating in IPUMS-International. We hope to complete the integration for launch in 2017 or 2018. Sorry for the delay. The highest priority is countries with 2010 round censuses. The Guatemalan 2012 census was postponed.

Thanks Bob. I’m looking forward to working with the data when it is made available.
