Linking the March Basic samples to their corresponding ASEC supplement responses is complicated by the fact that the ASEC includes an oversample of households from adjacent months. IPUMS-CPS is currently working on a variable called MARBASECID to facilitate linking the two data sets. The attached article goes into detail about the development of MARBASECID and the difficulties associated with linking the ASEC to March Basic responses. As noted in the pdf document, this article is still in draft form and should not be cited.

I hope this helps!
