My research topic is about the labour force participation, and so I collected some dataset from BHPS dataset, I have UKDA 5151 dataset and separated some variables I use in the analysis. But I would like to apply for this dataset using GMM, Fixed effect or other methods. I am using Stata 14.1 program for windows.

In UKDA 5151, I will use only `indresp` and 1-18 waves know, it continues to "aindresp", "bindresp", "cindresp"......"indresp"..

1- Before analysis this dataset, do we have to merge this dataset? so I do not know what to merge or append in STATA 14.1 programme?

2- After merge or append process for these data, can we analyse for our commands to these datasets?

3- Do you have any internet address for how to merge these datasets or link, or brochure or do file?

4- I will do static panel data analysis, such as fixed, random, pooled, or GMM...

attached my variables and model. If you help me for this issue, I am glad for this.


Best wishes
