Identifying information in NAPP data transferred to IPUMS-I

To my understanding, NAPP will be discontinued as an independent dataset from 2019 onwards, and will be merged with the IPUMS-International.

I wanted to know whether the existing US historical census data in NAPP which will be transferred to the IPUMS-International will include the personal identifiers i.e. the first name and last name, that were previously available in the NAPP (under NAMELAST, NAMEFIRST, and ADDRESS)? If not, is there a way to still get new data access to the censuses in the NAPP, which contain the personal identifier information, before it is discontinued?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Yes, these variable will be (read: are) available in the IPUMS International website. Note that the NAPP historical samples are currently all available in IPUMS International and the NAMELAST and NAMEFRST variable are available.
