To ease the access to the IBGE's household surveys, we offer the datazoom_social package in Stata. The package has specific funtions to read data from PNS, Censo Demográfico, PNAD Contínua (annual and quarterly), PNAD, PNAD Covid, PME, ECINF e POF.
To use the package the user needs to have access to Stata 12 or more recent versions. It's also recquired to have the original IBGE data downloaded. To install the package, the user needs to write the following code in Stata's command window:
net install datazoom_social, from("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/datazoompuc/datazoom_social_stata/master/") force
