Hello. I’m new to IPUMS and I’m trying to determine whether my use case is feasible. I’m struggling to understand person codes.
I’d like to examine a relationship pertaining to a household’s children and the receipt of TANF welfare subsidies. It seems like useful variables may exist in both USA and CPS. Is it possible to connect persons and/or households between USA and CPS sets, or are they entirely independent?
Furthermore: I know that because the data is rectangularized, one can connect a person to a household. How, exactly, do I do that?
Thank you so much for any help!
