The Decennial Census Digitization and Linkage project (DCDL) will digitize and link individual records across the 1960-1990 censuses and create tools to improve the dissemination of these data. When combined with already-available linkages between the censuses of 1940, 2000, 2010, and soon-to-be 2020, DCDL will complete a massive longitudinal data infrastructure covering almost the entire U.S. population since 1940. The resulting data resource will provide transformational opportunities for research, education, and evidence-building across the social, behavioral, and economic sciences. I'll describe the project's innovative methods of data rescue, record linkage, and restricted data access.

J. Trent Alexander is the Associate Director and a Research Professor at ICPSR in the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan. Alexander's research focuses on historical demography and large-scale data infrastructures. Prior to coming to ICPSR in 2017, Alexander initiated the Census Longitudinal Infrastructure Project at the Census Bureau and managed the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS) at the University of Minnesota.

Population Studies Center (PSC) Brown Bag seminars highlight recent research in population studies and serve as a focal point for building our research community.
