It is of great importance for researchers to find out different ways of accessing microdata, due to the ever-increasing demand for data and the expectation of reducing the response burden and costs at the same time. In this sense, statistical matching methods have been used extensively to produce new data using existing microdata of surveys and registers recently. It has an increasing application area in social studies such as poverty, deprivation, the effects of newborn on the economic situation of the household, indebtedness and demography, due to the gradual improvement of the micro estimation levels. Selection of matching variables among common variables, at this point, is a critical step in terms of the quality of the microdata to be reached. In the study, while selecting the common variables in order to estimate consumption expenditures by using Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (2018) and Household Budget Survey (2018), weights were added to Hellinger Distance and Spearman2 applications as a new approach. In addition, the effects of design variables (stratum and cluster) were also included in the processes, taking into account the complex structure of both samples. Adding household level weights and design variables to the statistical processes changed the selected or unselected common variables dramatically.
