CSES Integrated Module Dataset (IMD)
CSES IMD Stimulus Paper [PDF]
How do I merge additional variables from CSES modules onto the IMD?
The IMD contains several identifiers that allow users to merge additional variables from CSES modules onto the IMD. One means of doing so is to use the respondent identification variable, which appears as variable IMD1005 in the IMD. Variable IMD1005 uniquely identifies each respondent and maps onto the respondent identification variable found in each individual CSES module.
