Is it Ok to merge two ATUS data only using the variable "CPSIDP?"

Dear Madam/Sir,

I have two ATUS-X extracts. Both of them have "CPSIDP." Is it OK to merge these two data just using "CPSIDP?" "CPSIDP" uniquely identifies the respondent, right? Thank you!

CPSIDP should uniquely identify individuals. However the recommend variables for merging cases are YEAR, CASEID, and PERNUM, which should all be included you your extracts automatically.

I hope this helps.
