Hello, apologies for the previous post. I have the shape files for Senegal third level geography, and I downloaded the Census file.
In the shape file the variable is IPUM2013, a string with 9 characters. In the SPSS file the third level geography is GEO3_SN2013, a numeric variable with 7 characters. Is there a walk across or recoding file that I can apply or is it up to me to create a new string variable in the Census 2013 data, call it IPUM2013, and create it as a string 9 ch like 00_GEO3_SN2013?
