SAS utility macros Documentation is in the header of each file. Of particular interest for HILDA users will be the HILDALong.sas macro which creates a long file from all HILDA waves and the ABSJack macro which does Jackknife replication using replicate weights (for either ABS or HILDA data). This folder also contains a number of SAS utility macros, macros for inequality calculation and some old Australian Tax/Transfer macros (see TATLIB.TXT for information).
