Missing variable in the Brazil 2010 census data?

In 1991 and 2000 census samples there is a (unharmonized) variable indicating if the household is located in a "subnormal agglomerate". This data exists also in the 2010 census because the Brazilian Statistical Authority has used in a report, which has been referred extensively by media. But I can't find it in the IPUMS sample.

Any help would be very valuable.

guillermo,


The variable you are looking for existed in the 2000 census, but it does not exist in the 2010 census. If you check the original IBGE documentation of the 2000 census you will find the variable "V1007 - Setor, tipo". But you will not find this variable in IBGE the documentation of the 2010 census.


According to the Brazilian Census Bureau, a new methodology was usedin 2010 to define a census track as "aglomerado subnormal", including the use of satellite images:


"Apesar de o conceito de aglomerado subnormal ter permanecido o mesmo de censos anteriores, em 2010 o IBGE adotou inovações metodológicas e operacionais com objetivo de atualizar e aprimorar a identificação dos aglomerados. Foram utilizadas imagens de satélite de alta resolução, foi feita uma pesquisa específica, Levantamento de Informações Territoriais - LIT, sobre as características morfológicas das áreas, e realizadas reuniões sobre o tema nas Comissões Municipais de Geografia e Estatística - CMGEs." (p. 26, see the link in the source)

Thank you for the question. The codebook that we received does not have the category "subnormal agglomerate". Here are the codes and portuguese labels of the "Tipo de Espécie" variable as received from IBGE:

TIPO DE ESPÉCIE:
11- Casa
12- Casa de vila ou em condomínio
13- Apartamento
14- Habitação em: casa de cômodos, cortiço ou cabeça de porco
15- Oca ou maloca
51- Tenda ou barraca
52- Dentro de estabelecimento
53- Outro (vagão, trailer, gruta, etc)
61- Asilo, orfanato e similares
com morador
62- Hotel, pensão e similares com morador
63- Alojamento de trabalhadores com morador
64- Penitenciária, presídio ou casa de detenção com morador
