Question

Status:Closed    Asked:May 26, 2014 - 10:27 AM

Is there already a schedule when longitudinal data for all possible households and individuals will be available?

Hello, linking individuals from year t to year t-1 using march IPUMS-CPS data seems currently not possible.
Nevertheless I found under the link: https://cps.ipums.org/cps/release_dat... Upcoming IPUMS-CPS Data Releases - 2013 and beyond
the bullet point “ Longitudinal data for all possible households and individuals”.

Is there already a schedule when longitudinal data for all possible households and individuals will be available? Or is there any other possibility to
link individuals from year to year (using IPUMS-CPS) in the timespan from 1979-2013?

Thanks

The linking variables are currently being tested by IPUMS-CPS and will become available by the end of the year, if not sooner. In the mean time it is possible to link consecutive March samples using variables available in the CPS files from NBER. You can merge the necessary information from the NBER samples onto IPUMS-CPS samples to link IPUMS-CPS files as well. See this answer for more detail.

I hope this helps.
