The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is a new Census Bureau survey designed to collect a host of information on the social, demographic, and economic situation of the Nation's individuals and families, The data in the SIPP will be extremely valuable to labor market analysis, but, as with all demographic surveys, do not include characteristics of the employer for which the sample persons worked. This suggests the need to augment the SIPP data with data on the employer.

The pilot project will investigate various methodologies for matching individuals in the SIPP to their employers in the economic censuses, test the chosen methodology, identify problem areas and devise solutions, conduct the match for a pilot sample, develop proposals for analysis, and begin selected analysis.

This paper describes the matching methodology, matching problems and resolutions, and other issues such as access problems, error identification and estimation, adjustment for matching problems, and data releases.
