I have the census 1991 enumeration profiles (short and long version) and the census tract 1991 short and long version profiles. I wanted to know if one can merge the enumeration short and long version by region code, fed and EA or if such a merge is even meaningful? Similarly, I would like to merge the CT census profile (short and long version as well) however I am not sure what the identifying variables are for such a merge….(by ct, rp, cma)?
The files could be merged on the Geography using SAS Software. The client should also consider that the 100% database suppression is based upon the total population while the 20% sample database suppression is based upon the non-institutional population.
