Description

NATIVITY is constructed from the NAPP variables BPLCNTRY, FBPLUS, and MBPLUS. It identifies the respondent as either native-born or foreign-born, and for native-born respondents it indicates whether his/her mother and/or father was native-born or foreign-born. Those U.S. possessions and territories classified as "U.S. outlying areas" in BPL are considered foreign.

Comparability

The NAPP variable NATIVITY is completely compatible with the IPUMS variable NATIVITY.

Note that the "Native-Born" category for United States 1880, 1900, and 1910 datasets contain sub-categories 11, 12, 13, 14 that provide nativity information for parents.

The present version of the Great Britain 1881 census does not code foreign birthplaces. In the next revised release of the 1881 census of Great Britain, NAPP has planned for coding the foreign birthplaces based on the string field in the original dataset. Contact the NAPP staff if you are interested in using the original string field which notes birthplaces.
