Time plan for Census 1950?

HI IPUMS staff
I am working on a project about immigrants’ and descendants’ settlement structures in the period 1850-1950. From a web-seminar last year I - as far as I remember - full count census 1950 maybe could be ready sometime in 2023. I have two questions: 1) Do you have any time plan for uploading the full count 1950 census, and 2) what about linking between 1940 and 1950 census?
All best - and thanks again for your great job - from Denmark!

We do not have a definitive timeline for releasing the 1950 full count files. IPUMS is partnering with Ancestry to make the 1950 data available for research applications; we will share updates via email and IPUMS USA as we learn more about the timeline to release IPUMS 1950 data.

We are applying for funding to link across 1940 and 1950 censuses, as part of a continuation of the IPUMS Multigenerational Longitudinal Panel (IPUMS MLP) project.

Thank you so much for your reply. I am looking forward for the update, and cross my fingers for your apply for funding to link the two censuses.
All best Torben
