Your output does indeed look strange, however I am unable to replicate your results. I recommend downloading your extract again keeping these two things in mind. First, make sure you are waiting for your data file to unzip completely before attempting to read it into a statistical package. Second, check that you are using the command file that corresponds with your data file. If you use a command file generated for a prior extract, it will not read in correctly.

If the strange codes persist, please email ipums@umn.edu.
