Currently I work on a project that utilizes CPS-data from KCFed. I used Harmonized Variables (1976-present). However, there are a lot of empty entries in the table on several variables when I downloaded the data for different years. In particular, I’m interested in data on Outgoing Rotation Group (months 4 and 8), but for a lot of variables data is missed. Attached is a screenshot of the year 1980 as an example. Does anybody know, what is the reason for missing values and is it possible to access the full dataset?
I’ll be extremely grateful for any help and assistance!
Here’s the list of variables I used as reference:
Harmonized Variable (1976-Present):
HRMONTH_abc - month of interview
HRYEAR4_abc - year of interview
PWSSWGT_abc - final weight
PEERNHRO_abc - usual hours
PUWK_abc - last week, did you do any work for (either) pay (or profit)?
PUERNH1C_abc - what is your hourly rate of pay on this job, excluding overtime pay, tips or commission?
V1AGEDG12_ab_n - age
V1RACE_ab_n - race
PRDTHSP_abc - detailed hispanic
PEEDUCA_abc - highest level of school completed or degree received
PRDTIND1_abc_ne - detailed industries
PRDTOCC1_abc_ne - detailed occupations
HRMIS_abc - month-in-sample
HRHHID_abc - household identifier
