Code
SAS utility macros Documentation is in the header of each file. Of particular interest for HILDA users will be the HILDALong.sas macro which creates a long file from all HILDA waves and the ABSJack macro which does Jackknife replication using replicate weights (for either ABS or HILDA data). This folder also contains a number of SAS utility macros, macros for inequality calculation and some old Australian Tax/Transfer macros (see TATLIB.TXT for information).

SAS software tools for the analysis of data in the Luxembourg Income Study. Currently includes my code for debugging and submitting SAS programs to LIS.
