National Longitudinal Survey of Youth - 1997 Cohort

Appendix 5: Income and Assets Variable Creation

This appendix presents SAS programs for the creation of income and assets variables. Unless otherwise noted, the programs presented are for round 14, the most recent round. In cases where a variable has been discontinued, the program for the final round in which it was created is presented. Except for minor hand edits to account for inconsistencies in the raw data, variable creation code remains generally constant from round to round. However, users who need code for a specific round not included here may contact NLS User Services.
