psidR: Build Panel Data Sets from PSID Raw Data
Version 1.4

Makes it easy to build panel data in wide format from Panel Survey of Income Dynamics (PSID) delivered raw data. Deals with data downloaded and pre-processed by 'Stata' or 'SAS', or can optionally download directly from the PSID server using the 'SAScii' package. 'psidR' takes care of merging data from each wave onto a cross-period index file, so that individuals can be followed over time. The user must specify which years they are interested in, and the PSID variable names (e.g. ER21003) for each year (they differ in each year). There are different panel data designs and sample subsetting criteria implemented ("SRC", "SEO", "immigrant" and "latino" samples).
