I am trying to merge CEPR CPS ORG data with IPUMS CPS for 2007 using the variables “statecensus year month hrhhid2 hrhhid lineno sex age” to get few additional employment variables for individuals from IPUMS CPS merged to the CEPR ORG data.
Unfortunately, my merge using the above variables show that there are no matched records between the two files. Is this possible? One would expect the respondents in the CPS ORG to have at least one record in the IPUMS CPS.
Could you please help me understand how I can merge these two datasets?
