IPUMS NHGIS Data Extracts and Metadata are now accessible via API!

IPUMS is excited to announce that our first public APIs are ready for testing! You can now browse IPUMS NHGIS metadata using our IPUMS NHGIS Metadata API. You can also submit and retrieve extracts using our IPUMS NHGIS Data Extract API. If you would like to become a beta tester, follow the steps detailed in our developer portal here: Get Started!

Fantastic initiative! Any sense on timing of data access? I’m especially interested in Time Use data right now.

Thank you!

We don’t have a timeline yet, but we do plan to support all of our data products! As we add new features, functionality, and data we will be sure to post about it here, so stay tuned!
