I downloaded a customized ACS dataset (2008-2016), but when I used the setup file to convert it to Stata format, it doesn’t seem to have run correctly (or there’s a problem with the .dat file). For example, the YEAR variable is missing for almost all cases (3.3 mil), and for those cases that have a valid entry for YEAR, it’s a number that doesn’t make sense (e.g. 67 or 3510).
I’ve tried re-doing it a few times, and also revised my origional data request and re-downloaded the .dat file, but it does the same thing every time. (I’m using Stata/SE 15.1)
Thanks for your help
