The National Statistical Offices (NSOs) from African countries in collaboration with the Minnesota Population Center (MPC) is developing the the African Integrated Census Microdata (AICMD) portal. The database contains anonymized microdata samples encompassing 19 censuses and totaling more than 27 million person records (June 2010). The integration and full documentation of the data are organized by the MPC, in parallel with similar activities covering other parts of the world with funding by the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health of the United States. By 2015, the MPC is committed to disseminating at least 250 integrated census microdata sets from 80 or more countries. African censuses may constitute as much as one-fourth of the database with widespread support of NSOs in Africa. Contains approximately 112 census microdata samples from the 1960, 1970, 1980, 1990 and 2000 for several African countries. Includes an inventory of censuses, however not all countries have available microdata.
