Users can access the microdata collected in these household surveys. Due to the large number of topics investigated, there are several microdata files in each year. In order to use the packages, the user must first obtain the microdata related to the rounds she is interested in. Data Zoom does not provide these data. There are no files available for download. For information on how to acquire the microdata and other files, click here.
DataZoom provides a tool for reading the microdata through STATA, generating STATA format files (.dta) without any data manipulation.
