I would like to follow up on a question asked in august 2015, this was the response:
It is not possible to directly extract the Merged Outgoing Rotation Groupsample; however, you can keep only the ORG cases after downloading your IPUMS data extract. Outgoing Rotation Group members are those respondents that meet all of the following criteria: AGE=15+,EMPSTAT=10-12, CLASSWKR=20-28, and MISH=4 or 8. Researchers should use the earnings weight variable EARNWT when analyzing the outgoing rotation group/earner study.
Expanding the number of basic monthly samples and variables is one of the major projects for this year. Unfortunately, it is not clear at the moment how quickly IPUMS-CPS will be able to make the 1976-1988 basic monthlysamples available. In the meantime, the source data are available throughNBER.
Hope this helps.
My question is this. If I follow this and only using those respondents that fit the variables listed about in MISH 4 & 8 will I have duplicate individuals? If so, does EARNWT take care of duplicates? Or should I drop the duplicates from my analysis?
Thank you in advance.
