IPUMS does not typically provide customized datasets upon request. Rather IPUMS provides an online data extract system that allows users to customize and download data themselves. From the sounds of it, you may be interested in using data via IPUMS USA (which includes the US Census and American Community Survey) or IPUMS CPS (which includes the Current Population Survey).

A couple notes about your request: First, if you want monthly data, you'll need to use IPUMS CPS. The US Census and ACS only provide annual data. Second, while US states are identifiable in modern samples, the CPS data is only able to identify about 45% of households within US counties. This is due to confidentiality restrictions. Finally, while the CPS does include some demographic variables, the demographic information is not as rich as in the US Census/ACS data.

We also have training material and online tutorials that may be helpful.

I hope this is helpful.
