How to link individuals from one March sample to another?


I want to link individuals from the March 2014 sample to the March 2015 sample. What variable will I need to include in my extract? How do I link them?


You should be able to link households from the 2014 ASEC to the 2015 ASEC by using HRHHID and HRHHID2. You can link individuals by including LINENO, AGE(allowed to increase by one), SEX, and RACE.

Hope this helps.
