Hello everyone! I am working on my dissertation and need help identifying which degree codes in the DEGFIELD and DEGFIELD2 in the 2018 ACS are STEM. I am using the DHS approved STEM degree field list but the codes in that list do not correlate to the codes in the IPUMS DEGFIELDS variable. Will I have to do this crosswalk by hand? Has anyone else done this? Any suggestion for how to proceed? Thank you!
This forum post with a similar question provides a CIP-Census crosswalk for the field of degree codes. I’m attaching the same file to my response here.
