Harmonized KLoSA Creation Code

The Harmonized KLOSA version C dataset is created using data from the the KLOSA Wave 1 - 6 as of June 2019. 

Download the Harmonized KLoSA Stata Creation Code.

To run the Harmonized KLoSA Creation Code in Stata:

  • From KEIS download the Stata data files for Waves 1 - 6 (including Wave 5 add files), download the Stata exit data files for waves 2-6, download the KLoSA 1~5 wave STATA_imputation zip file.
  • Unzip the KLoSA 1~5 wave STATA_imputation zip and place all files in the same folder as the other KLoSA data files.
  • Edit line 12 of the Stata Creation Code to list the folder location of all KLoSA data for all waves and edit line 13 to list the folder location where you would like to save the Harmonized KLoSA dataset. 

If you would prefer to work with the Harmonized KLoSA dataset in a statistical package other than Stata, you can convert the Harmonized KLoSA 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.
