This hands-on workshop will be led by Katie Genadek from the Minnesota Population Center at the University of Minnesota. The following topics will be covered.

• What is the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS)?
• What data are available via the IPUMS?
• How are the data documented and how can I utilize the interactive metadata?
