I am confused about the answer to the question from the thread here
In explaining how to merge CPS data files from NBER with IPUMS, Joe said
“It is important to note that the basic March file is different from the March supplement (or ASEC) file and the two cannot be merged. IPUMS-CPS does not currently offer the March basic file, only the March supplement file.”
But it looks to me that IPUMS does offer the basic files: basic monthly is an option under samples, here
But the multiple jobholders variable is still not available. Is Joe’s answer from last year now out of date? Thanks.
