Using NHIS data in my class


I am teaching an econometrics course next semester. I will ask students to create an account with IPUMS and download data from the most recent survey. Meanwhile, I want to share with them the NHIS data from IPUMS I used in a publication a few years ago and go over some analytic exercises, etc. I combined data from 12 years of NHIS for the analysis in that publication. Am I allowed to share those data with students?

Also, what does IPUMS stand for?

Many thanks,

Since you are sharing the data for educational purposes within a class setting, this is permitted.The IPUMS-NHIS data is essentially a repackaging of public-use NHIS data, which is publicly available.

IPUMS stands for Integrated Public Use Microdata Series
