I downloaded the separate Cape Area Study Panel Waves 1-2-3 Household and Waves 1-2-3 Young Adult data and now I would like to merge them. How do I do that?
The Waves 1-2-3 Household and Waves 1-2-3 Young Adult data can be merged on the unique individual identifier personid, as can all other CAPS Waves 1-2-3 datasets. STATA code below:
/*open the Household data (replace 'filepath' with the relevant mapping)*/ use \filepath\capsw123.h.merge.v0612.dta,clear /*sort on personid before merging*/ sort personid /*merge with the Young Adult data by personid (replace 'filepath' with the relevant mapping) merge personid using \filepath\capsw123.y.wide.v0612.dta The Cape Area Panel Study downloaded from: www.caps.uct.ac.za More questions about CAPS? email: firstname.lastname@example.org
