I have downloaded quite a number of files the Labour Force Survey for a researcher. In the data directory, there are folders with names like "micro2007-v3.zip". When I unzip them the files are .prn files. As I know very little about SPSS, could someone please tell me what these files are and how to use them in SPSS or if they are even for SPSS?
You can find rather more detailed instructions here (It’s for ICPSR data, but the principle is the same):
These are the data files. In the doc folder I believe is where you will find the SPSS syntax to create the file. I recommend consulting the DLI Survival guide, which helps address how to work with the syntax file.
