Kirimi,

Jean Roth at the NBER makes do files and dictionary files that import CPS data into Stata.  The data is available here: 

http://www.nber.org/data/cps_basic.html

The do files and dictionary files are here:

http://www.nber.org/data/cps_basic_progs.html

The do files contain comments with instructions on how to import the data.

If you need data from CPS supplements (e.g. the March ASEC supplement), the NBER also has do files for some (all?) of those.  Unfortunately, the NBER website just stopped working for me, so I can't find the link.

Hope this helps.
Howie

Dear Users,

I have been trying to get the CPS surveys data set to STATA and cannot 
seem to get it done. Is there anyone who knows how I can do this the 
data has a .dct extension and have no luck even trying to get it 
converted with STATTRANSFER. Please help. The data I need is from 2005 
to 2008 March. I can get it at 
http://www.bls.census.gov/cps_ftp.html#cpsmarch

Thank you,

Kirimi
