Dear Steven,Yes, PSUs were randomly selected in each survey. One survey designwas done in two stages the others in three stages. However, thesampling frame is the same and based on the census.I want to see if outcomes (Yi e.g. school/health) do change overtime for peple that are living in some areas (dt) that are exposedto a certain treatment. So in the main issue I am looking for isthe effect of residing in a certain region at a certain time onoutcomes (assuming there is no migration).I am also wondering if I would need to aggregate variables to ahigher level maybe cohort or district? because I do not have paneldata but repeated cross section surveys.How do I deal with the difference of the sample designs? regards, Gaby --- On Tue, 10/7/08, Steven Samuels <sjhsamuels@earthlink.net> wrote:From: Steven Samuels <sjhsamuels@earthlink.net> Subject: Re: st: pool cross-section survey data To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Date: Tuesday, October 7, 2008, 2:07 PM You might find useful some of the advice at http://www.stata.com/ statalist/archive/2007-11/msg00216.html. You probably need a -survey- enabled analysis, or at least one that can handle weights and clustering. To advise you further, we would need details of the survey design (strata, stages, units at each stage, weights). Of particular interest: were primary sampling units (PSUs) selected anew at each survey? Also, what exactly is the goal of your analysis? The suffix "dt" in your equation suggests to me that you want to look at changes. -Steve On Oct 7, 2008, at 1:47 PM, Clive Nicholas wrote:Gaby Guerrero Serdan wrote:I wonder if you could point me out on readings andon the mainissues when trying to pool two or threeindependent cross-sectional surveys.
