Profile Data through 2016 (Demographic Variables for All Panelists Recruited)
Profile Data, 2017-2018
Codebook -- The TAPS documentation is sorted three ways below to aid you in locating information.
- Alpha (sorted alphabetically by variable name)
- Recurring Topic (sorted by topics, showing how many time a question has been asked of the panel)
- Month-to-Month (sorted by monthly survey)
Technical Report -- The technical report gives information on response rates, sample sizes, how to use weights, variable name explanation, etc.
The resulting sample design and expected outcome is as follows:
|Stratum||Mailing count||Mailing distribution||Yields proportion||Yields count||Profiled proportion||Profiled count||Strata distributions sample||Strata distributions frame|
|1. Hispanic 18-24||333||1.0%||0.056||19||0.65||12||0.6%||0.2%|
|2. Hispanic 25+/unk||6,943||19.9%||0.064||445||0.65||289||14.4%||14.1%|
|3. Other 18-24||459||1.3%||0.144||68||0.65||44||2.7%||0.7%|
|4. All Else 25+/unk||27,071||77.8%||0.094||2,550||0.65||1,657||82.8%||85.0%|

The weightTAPSPACK subsets The American Panel Survey (TAPS) data by outcome and covariates, models the attrition rates, imputes data for attrited individuals, and finds weights for analysis. It is currently available on CRAN. Full documentation can be found at https://cran.fhcrc.org/web/packages/weightTAPSPACK/index.html
