Hi, I’ve extracted data on 201,051 ATUS respondents from all available years. Of these, more than 72,000 are identified as observations for which the ATUS designated person is NOT the same as the CPS designated person. However, there is valid data for all observations regardless of whether designated persons match, as shown below. So would I exclude the “atusdp=2” respondents only when I’m using matched CPS data? Or are there other circumstances in which I’d exclude them, even though there’s time use data for those observations? thanks much, Sanjiv
