Does IPUMS have the original module on international migration of the 2000 Mexican Census?

The 2000 Mexican Census had a module on international migration (module 8 available here: http://www.inegi.org.mx/est/contenido...)


I am interested in the question: "Durante los últimos 5 años, esto es, de enero de 1995 a la fecha, alguna persona que vive o vivia con ustedes (en este hogar) se fue a vivir a otro país", which roughly translates into "During the last five years, that is, from January 1995 to today, has any person that lives or lived with you (in this household) gone to live in another country?"


I think this information is different from what provided in MIGRATE5.

Is the original Census question available anywhere in IPUMS?


Many thanks!
