I’m doing some research for a professor who is attempting to collect data on racial disparities in the town of Oberlin, OH in the years 1930 and 1940 using census data.
I managed to narrow down the data to solely Oberlin using a combination of STDCITY and INCORP, but these variables are only available for the 1% samples of each census. Given that the most narrow variable to select cases for is METAREA, a 1% sample of the Cleveland metro area includes little to no data from Oberlin.
Are there any variables that could help me narrow this METAREA data to Oberlin specifically that are available with the full data samples? If not, is there any other recourse for me here? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
