The European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) covers a wide array of varia-bles collected from households by the Member States. Among others, EU-SILC contains panel data that follows a rotational design. Each year, Eurostat publishes a series of separate datasets covering only up to 4 years, even though it has been collecting data since 2003. "eusilcpanel" is a script (download: https://www.gesis.org/gml/european-microdata/eu-silc/) in the form of a Stata package (eusilcpan-el.ado; eusilcpanel.sthlp; totalpopulation.dta), that is able to merge these chunks of data into one cumulative dataset (separately for the D-,H-,R- and P-data). The script makes the EU-SILC panel more accessible to researchers in the vast majority of cases, but it can't deal with data from all countries.
