Longitudinal identifiers

#1

Hello,

I am trying to match monthly cps. I was wondering if you are going to provide time consistent individual identifiers (like hrhhid and hrihhid2) to match households and individuals over time. I read on this forum and on your website that the longitudinal identifiers should be available by the end of this year.

Any news about it?

Thank you very much

best

Unfortunately, we were not able to make the linking keys available by the end of 2014. We are currently still working on them and hope to release them by this summer.

Hope this helps.
