PSIDUSE: Stata module providing easy PSID access
AbstractThis package performs data retrievals from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) and for the American part of the Cross National Equivalence File (CNEF). The package is a companion of the soepuse package which provides a similar functionality for the German Socio Economic Panel. The package creates PSID data sets holding the variables listed in the command with an harmonized scheme for variable names. By default, the created files will have a balanced design, but various other designs could be specified.
