BHPS to US migration data
First time here so apologies if not the correct place to post. Is it possible to analyse movements of people (literally migrating from one region to another) from the BHPS (say 2004) to US (say wave 3)? Is there an identifier that would follow people through both surveys? If so would it be reliable enough in terms of sample size, to find this kind of data?

Thanks - geography is not an issue - it's only regions that I need. But I couldn't see any matching unique person or household codes between wave fourteen of the BHPS and wave 3 of Understanding Society. Which identifier do I use to match these two datasets, in a longitudinal way?

The new user guide explains all about the overlap between the two studies and how the data may be linked;
