Abstract: The PSID-GSOEP Equivalent File is designed to allow cross-national researchers notexperienced in panel data analysis to access a simplified version of these two panels, while providing experienced panel data users with guidelines for formulating equivalent variables across countries. Most importantly, the equivalent data file provides a set of constructed variables (for example pre-and post-government income and United States and international household equivalence weights) that are not directly available on either of the two surveys, PSID-GSOEP users can easily incorporate these constructed variables into current analysis. PSID data from 1980 to 1994 on over 25,000 individuals and 7,000 households and GSOEP data from 1984 to 1994 on over 17,000 individuals are 5,000 households are included in this release of the data.
