Is it possible to select county level data for 1830-1890 e.g.Chesterfield County, VA?

Hi,


I am trying to link a delegate from the Virginia Convention of 1830 and find relevant county level data about his district in IPUMS.


Is it possible

Yes, this should be possible. IPUMS has full-count samples available with individual-level variables dating back to 1850. For pre-1850 data files we have complete count files of county and household level variables, available here. Through both of these sources, it should be possible to identify individual counties. Although it should be noted that it is not possible to use the "Select Cases" tool to limit your data extract to an individual county. This is because the county identifier variables are state-dependent.
