November 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the first IPUMS data release. Since then, IPUMS has gone on to become the world's largest and most accessible population database.

In honor of this anniversary, we are raising $25,000 to help make a good thing even better. Donations will go to support things not covered by grants, including IPUMS Research Awards, bringing more scholars to IPUMS headquarters to share their research results, and professional development for the IPUMS team, among other things. These funds also allow us to do more of what we already do: provide great user support and ensure long-term preservation of these data.

PRELIMINARY PROJECTIONS
We cross-tabulated some user data and projected the following scenarios to get us to our goal.

  • GIVE $25
    If 1,000 of our 75,000 active users gave $25, we would meet our goal, and the townspeople of IPUMS would rejoice.
  • GIVE $100
    Are you regularly downloading our data? If 250 regular users pony up $100, you'll help IPUMS do even more for you over the next 25 years!
  • GIVE $250
    Did IPUMS provide critical data that allowed you to complete your career-making research? If so, humor us with a little more math: if a mere 100 grateful users generously donated $250 each, you'd ensure an even higher standard out of IPUMS HQ for future users, for years to come. 
     

IPUMS data are free to use. But that doesn't mean they are free to create.

If IPUMS has helped you, consider helping IPUMS celebrate 25 incredible years. It's our turn to use it for good...never for evil!

Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. Please consider showing your appreciation for 25 years of IPUMS data releases.
