IPUMS Terra: Version 1

Minnesota Population Center. Terra Populus: Integrated Data on Population and Environment: Version 1 [dataset]. Minneapolis, MN: University of Minnesota, 2016. http://doi.org/10.18128/D090.V1


TerraPop provides data on human population characteristics, land use, land cover, climate and other environmental characteristics. The data provide global coverage at scales appropriate for sub-national analysis. TerraPop integrates microdata describing individuals and households, aggregate data describing population and land use characteristics of places, and raster data describing environmental conditions. Users can construct extracts incorporating any data in the collection, regardless of its storage format, and obtain integrated extracts in microdata, area-level, or raster format, depending on their needs. In addition to the extract builder, TerraPop provides tools for subsetting raster data (TerraClip) and exploring, visualizing, and performing basic analyses on-line (TerraScope). TerraPop resources are available free of charge to registered users at terrapop.org.


IPUMS-TERRA data are continually revised. We archive version snapshots and document changes between snapshots. The changes made to Version 1 before we archived Version 2 occurred between 08-16-2016 and 11-14-2018 on the current revisions page.
