I think I might have found another error at IPUMS-CPS.
According to data description page (screenshot: http://prntscr.com/h6lrmi), the variable “empstat” is either 21 or 22 for years like 76,77,78…
“An ‘X’ indicates the category is available for that sample”
However, when I actually look at the data, they are 20.
So, if I do
keep if empstat==21 | empstat==22
then only data from 1989 are left.
Could you please if this is an error? If it’s not an error, please tell me what I am thinking wrong.
