HRSAMPLE_CPS8 identifies the CPS basic monthly sample to which the household belongs.
HRSAMPLE_CPS8 was used through April 2004. After that date, HRHHID2_CPS8 combined information from HRSAMPLE_CPS8, HRSERSUF_CPS8, and HUHHNUM_CPS8. HRSAMPLE_CPS8 and related technical variables are needed to link these data with the Current Population Survey data that is not yet offered through our system. This document provides detailed information on linking files.
