Status:Closed    Asked:Oct 15, 2015 - 02:13 PM

Is the procedure for matching ATUS-X to CPS ASEC unchanged since 2006?

The information on linking ATUS-X to CPS at https://www.atusdata.org/atus/linking... appears to be only partially updated. It links to this pdf from BLS: https://www.atusdata.org/atus/resourc...


The pdf only covers matching samples through 2006, which is the same as 2005. Are the variables and procedure unchanged since 2006?

The CPS identifier variables have remained the same since May 2004. As a result, the variables and procedures outlined in the BLS linking instructions are still sufficient for linking the more recent CPS and ATUS samples.


Hope this helps.
