A panel survey is one which deliberately resurveys the same units. My guess is that you are talking about repeated independent samples of a population at different times. If not, please provide more details. If so, the chance appearance of individuals in more than one survey is not an issue. Use Stata survey commands, and incorporate "survey occasion" into the stratum definition for the -svyset- command. For most repeated surveys, the study documentation will give advice about this kind of issue.

Dear all,


I want to do a regression of employment (logistic) and wage
(loglinear) on some demographic variables. I do the regressions on a
cross-section data of labor force survey. However, small proportion of
individuals in the data recur more than once.


How do I take into account the fact some people appear more than once
in the data. Do I have to be concerned from running a simple
regression?


Thanks
fekadu,
