Download the Harmonized TILDA Stata Creation Code.

To run the Harmonized TILDA Creation Code in Stata:

  • Edit lines 13 and 14 of the Stata Creation Code to list the folder location of the TILDA data (both Wave 1 and Wave 2 in the same folder) and the folder location where you would like to save the Harmonized TILDA dataset. 

If you would prefer to work with the Harmonized TILDA dataset in a statistical package other than Stata, you can convert the Harmonized TILDA Stata dataset using a program such as Stat/Transfer. If you do not have access to Stat/Transfer, you may be able to read the .dta dataset into your stat package using an “import” or “get” function. When reading a .dta dataset into another package, it is best to first save the dataset in a Stata version 12 format using the command saveold.
