Is the procedure for matching ATUS-X to CPS ASEC unchanged since 2006?


#1

The information on linking ATUS-X to CPS at https://www.atusdata.org/atus/linking… appears to be only partially updated. It links to this pdf from BLS: https://www.atusdata.org/atus/resourc…

The pdf only covers matching samples through 2006, which is the same as 2005. Are the variables and procedure unchanged since 2006?


#2

The CPS identifier variables have remained the same since May 2004. As a result, the variables and procedures outlined in the BLS linking instructions are still sufficient for linking the more recent CPS and ATUS samples.

Hope this helps.
