Users' Guide to Selecting Weights Using the 2014 SIPP Panel

This guide is intended as a reference for data users who need information about selecting the appropriate weight(s) for analyzing 2014 SIPP panel data.

SIPP Synthetic Beta Data

The SIPP Synthetic Beta (SSB) is a Census Bureau product that integrates person-level micro-data from a household survey with administrative tax and benefit data. These data link respondents from the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) to Social Security Administration (SSA)/Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form W-2 records and SSA records of retirement and disability benefit receipt, and were produced by Census Bureau staff economists and statisticians in collaboration with researchers at Cornell University, the SSA and the IRS.
