Research tutorial

I would like to schedule a tutorial to get started on a project using the CPS. I am interested in data on educational attainment specifically the GED.

I want to use samples from 1980 to 2005 for North Carolina, using race and age as variables.

I have all the appropriate codes. Thank you, Scott Baker
