There were questions asked in the census that I don’t see in NAPP. Where are the data?
The Church of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), in collaboration with local genealogical societies, laboriously digitized the censuses of Great Britain, Canada and the United States, to provide a resource for genealogical research. Some of the variables have not been digitized by the LDS and are not included in the NAPP datasets. Also, some countries did not supply variables for every census question. The census responses may never have been processed or digitized. It is also possible we have the data, but have insufficient metadata to make it available at this time. When we add a sample, we harmonize only the core group of variables that we think most researchers would desire. Other variables can be accessed through the unharmonized variables.
