IPUMS TERRA (Terra Populus: Integrated Data on Population and Environment)
Integrates the world's population and environmental data, including population censuses and surveys; land cover information from remote sensing; climate records from weather stations; and land use records from statistical agencies. Includes over 80 countries. Will cease on September 30, 2022.
Most of the data in IPUMS Terra will continue to be available through other sources.
- Microdata are available via IPUMS International
- Area-level population data are available via IPUMS IHGIS. IHGIS includes data from the published results of dozens of censuses, with additional datasets added regularly. The datasets in IHGIS typically include a much more extensive selection of tables than those currently available in Terra, particularly for censuses not included in IPUMS International. We are also exploring incorporating the data tabulated from IPUMS International microdata that are currently available in IPUMS Terra.
- Boundary shapefiles are available for download from IPUMS International and/or IHGIS, depending on which project houses the associated population data.
- Raster data on land use, land cover, and climate are available from the data producers. We will compile a web page containing links to the sources of IPUMS Terra’s raster data. Watch our decommissioning page for a link to the raster sources page.
