Merging and Linking Data Sets

Mon 2 Dec 2019


Merging and linking data sets are a process that researchers often encounter. In most cohort studies and longitudinal data sets, data on the same respondents who were interviewed at various times may be stored in different files. Or, data on different respondents but were interviewed at the same time, such as mothers and their children, may also be stored in various files. In either case, we may want to merge/link the files together before performing further analyses. This course will discuss two different ways of combining data files: merge (one-to-one merging and one-to-many merging) and append, and will demonstrate how to use ‘merge’ and ‘append’ commands in Stata.

Target audience
  • University Students from Tier 1 Departments
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available here

None; but this module will primarily be of interest to students wishing to perform some sort of statistical analysis, so students without any background in statistics should be intending to study statistics at least until the level of BQA.
