I’ve attempted to download data from the 2010 survey data for Brazil. However, I noticed several issues with the data when I open it in Stata.
Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte are not included in the data, which I intend to use as the focus of my research
The metro area does not match up with the state. For example, it lists the metro area as Natal, which is in the state of Bahia, but it has been matched up with observations in the state of Minas Gerais, which is not true.
Please let me know if you have any further advice. Is it possible that the size of the file was too large? Or is something else occurring?
