Rescuing Important Data: Peru 1981

Manhasset, NY —January 2011.Late in the fall of 2010, two extremely well made wooden crates arrived by diplomatic transport at the New York Peruvian Consulate. They contained what are by some standards "ancient" computer tape reels. This was the culmination of several months of discussion, careful planning and testing. The principal parties were: the Instituto Nacional de Estadística e Informática (INEI) and the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series organization (IPUMS). The tapes were being entrusted to a company known to many as the "Raiders of the Lost Archives".
