Description

For all events, PIDE is a within-Dwelling Unit (DU) person identifier assigned in sampling or by the computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI) instrument on the event record. PIDE must be combined with DUIDE and PANELE to uniquely identify persons across all MEPS data. IPUMS MEPS offers the constructed variable MEPSIDE, created by concatenating the values of DUIDE, PIDE, and PANELE.

Please see the user note for more information on the relationship between Dwelling Units, families, Reporting Units, and persons.
