Hi, I’m currently trying to replicate the published statistics from the BLS, using the data from the CPS monthly basic data.
While I succeeded in deriving the same number of employment and unemployment as published, using EMPSTAT and COMPWT, I am having trouble with deriving the number of employed by industry. Using IND, EMPSTAT, and COMPWT, I derived the figures by industry. While the aggregated number is the same as published one, the numbers in each industry are slightly different.
Do you have any insights for this issue? Is it a impossible to derive them from IPUMS-CPS data? If so, what prevents me from deriving them?
