Matching statistico tra dati ISTAT sui consumi e dati bakitalia sui redditi per il 1995, 48p.
In this paper we evaluate the feasibility of statistical matching of ISTAT survey on Consumption and Bank of Italy survey on Income and Wealth, in order to set up a new combined dataset. We consider matching both of individual records and of aggregate information concerning family types. First, we recode the variables of interest, to allow for homogeneous definition of such variables in the two samples. Then, we define some family types according to the head of the family characteristics, and some other types referring to the maximum earner’s. In both cases we compare information on income and consumption by family type from the two sources. Last, we look at individual matching, sketching briefly the main issues arising in this procedures.
