HaSpaD - Harmonization Wizard

Back to HaSpaD webpage

The HaSpaD - Harmonization Wizard is used for the selection, cumulation and harmonization of partnership biographies from different survey programs to create a comprehensive final dataset. In addition to the partnership biography data, additional variables of all selected survey programs may be included into this final dataset. After the selection of variables and surveys, the Wizard compiles a customized .zip-folder. Before running the main-file, that is included in this folder and that creates the cumulated and harmonized dataset, users must download the original source datasets from their repositories.

Following steps must be performed:

  1. Select topics or individual variables
  2. Select survey programs
  3. Summary of selection
    1. Check the availability of your selected variables and deselect if necessary
    2. Make your final choice and continue
  4. Download the haspad.zip-folder containing the Stata files for preparing the partnership biographies and additional variables of the selected survey programs
  5. Download original datasets from their repositories

In this section, the additional variables relevant to your research question can be selected individually or by topic.
