KIDS 2004 Data Set Print

     The third wave of the KwaZulu-Natal Income Dynamics Study (KIDS) conducted in 2004 re-interviewed households contacted in 1993 and  1998. KIDS 2004 is the recently completed third wave of this panel study. 
       
      Data available
      The data from all three waves of the study are available at no cost from this site, via the request form on the left-hand panel. The current download of KIDS is 2004 version 1-1. Details of the changes from the previous version are contained in the documentation.
       
      About the files 
      The main instrument was a comprehensive household survey that collected an array of information on the socio-economic circumstances of households.
      The files, available as zipped documents, are listed in a drop-down list. Documentation for the 2004 data is to be found in both the SPSS and STATA files for 2004; and in the Metadata 93_98 file for 1993 and 1998.
      Important Note
      The patches can be used to remove and change clusters which were found to be problematic after the third wave. The most up to date patches thus far are Patch v1 for STATA users and Patch v2 for SPSS users. These patches remove clusters 217 and 218 and change  cluster 206 from rural to urban.
       
      Collaborating Institutions 
      The collaborating institutions include the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).   However, in order to accommodate new areas of interest, the participating institutions have been broadened to include the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the Norwegian Institute of Urban and Regional Studies (NIBR).  In addition to the resources provided by each of the collaborating institutions, the study was funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) through DSD, the National Research Foundation, the Norwegian Research Council, USAID and the Mellon Foundation.
