I'm not entirely sure what IPUMS project you are referring to. Most IPUMS projects (e.g. IPUMS USA, IPUMS CPS, IPUMS Health Surveys, IPUMS Time Use, and IPUMS International) provide micro-level data. This is data where each observation is either the household or the individual. So, if you want aggregate level statistics, you'll have to calculate these on your own using a statistical software. IPUMS NHGIS, however, provides access to ready-made tables that are aggregated a various levels of geography.

I hope this helps.
