This paper documents how to generate consistent education, employment, fertility and residential careers from the Russian Employment and Education Survey (EES). We describe how we imputed missing or inaccurate data. Furthermore, we estimate a first birth model to demonstrate how this data could be used for event history modelling. A sensitivity analysis shows that the results are very stable in respect to the imputation of missing dates. Data is organized in spell or episode format. For manipulating the data, we used the software STATA 10.0.
Keywords: Russian Federation, education, employment
