ABRAJANO-POOLE Method of Linking Surveys Using Affective “Signatures” -- (25 September 2011)
  1. FIX_10.FOR -- FORTRAN program that reads Thermometers from the 2004 NES file and the Annenberg 2004 Election File and writes the ten common thermometers to disk. The program reads:
    The program writes these files:
      ELEC2004_ONLY_10.DAT -- Output File of the 10 Common thermometers from the 2004 NES Survery
      ANNENBERG_ONLY_10.DAT -- Output File of the 10 Common thermometers from the 2004 Annenberg Survery --
      BUSH , KERRY , CHENEY , EDWARDS, NADER , ASHCROFT, LBUSH, BCLINTON, HCLINTON, MCCAIN
  2. MATCH_RESP_2008.FOR -- FORTRAN program that reads ELEC2004_ONLY_10.DAT and ANNENBERG_ONLY_10.DAT and finds the Respondent in the 2004 NES that has the closest match (at least 4 common thermometers, mean of absolute differences) to the Respondent in the 2004 Annenberg survey.
    The program writes these files:
      ROSETTA.DAT -- Output File of the ID Number from Annenberg and the dual 4-digit ID Numbers from the NES of the matched respondents (n=61,980)
      MARISSA_MATCH.DAT -- Diagnostic File that writes 6 records for every match (n=371,880). The first record shows the Annenber ID number (1100200011 below) and the 10 Thermometers (ignore the block of numbers after the 10 thermometers). The next 5 records show the NES records that best match. The column of "4"s show that the Annenberg respondent only had 4 of the 10 thermometers and then the number after that is the match value (e.g., (15+10)/4=6.25)
