A revolutionary collection
of data on four generations
of 20th-century Americans

The LIFE-M project combines millions of U.S. vital records (birth, marriage, death certificates) with census information into a longitudinal and intergenerational micro-database.

With the help of cutting-edge, machine learning techniques, the LIFE-M data follow four generations of Americans from birth to death. High quality training data is used to achieve large-scale performance at high rates of precision.
