Hello SAS communities,

 

I want to merge a data set of individuals shopping at stores and store information. I have data set of individuals shop at which store and another dataset with store information. The two data sets are not of same size. How can I merge the information of store into the individual shopping data? 

 

Example of my data:

Individual data like this:

id   store

1      1

1      2

2      1

3      3

4      2

....

 

Store data like this: 

store  location   convenience    inventory 

1           1                   7                 5

2           4                   8                 6

3           3                   8                 5

....

 

I want a data like this:

id   store  location   convenience    inventory

1      1      1                 7                    5

1      2      4                 8                    6 

2      1      1                 7                    5 

3      3      3                 8                    5

4      2      4                 8                    6 

....

 

Thanks!
