I’m very pleased to see the progress in bringing MICS data into the IPUMS platform. I’m wondering if there are plans to harmonize the childhood immunization variables? Thanks!
IPUMS MICS is a brand new data collection made possible by collaboration between IPUMS and UNICEF. The variables we are offering at this time are all currently available from IPUMS MICS. While we may integrate additional data into IPUMS MICS in the future, at this time we do not have any information to share about the addition of childhood immunization variables.
Thank you, Isabel. I’ll just say that it has been great to work with the immunization data in the IPUMS DHS feed, and I hope to be able to do the same with IPUMS MICS someday.
