Combining the BHPS and UKHLS CNEF datasets
I'm a new user of the CNEF harmonised datasets, which include the BHPS dataset and the UKHLS from 2009 to 2015. I have read the userguide on the harmonised BHPS UKHLS data, but note that a specific treatment of the CNEF is not found, hence my query.
Since I need to do analyses on the UK sample from 2001-2015, it would be ideal if I could merge the two CNEF datasets to make one dataset. Since the data are already harmonised, I am guessing that this will be straightforward. However, I am not sure if my thinking is correct here or whether there are other issues with the data about which I am not aware. In the absence of a specific help file for merging the CNEF versions of the datasets, can you give some advice about this? Can the two sets be merged?
