Creating a 1995 OHS and a Combined OHS-IES Database in STATA


Author Info

  • Pauw, Kalie


This paper builds on Technical Paper 2003: 1. It provides a technical description of how the 1995 October Household Survey (OHS) dataset was created in STATA and subsequently merged with the 1995 Income and Expenditure Survey (IES) dataset to form a combined dataset. The combined survey links household-level income statistics from IES 1995 with individual-level employment data from OHS 1995. This linking of data is necessary for the construction of the Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) sub-matrix that links factor income data to household income. Since the same set of households were visited for both surveys it is possible to merge observations using unique household identification numbers. All the STATA do-files are listed in the technical appendix.
