Description

I found conflicting information on the fieldwork dates for wave 17 of BHPS. According to

https://www.iser.essex.ac.uk/2008/07/15/wave-17-bhps-fieldwork-completed-in-march-2008

fieldwork for wave 17 ended in March 2008 while according to

http://www.esds.ac.uk/findingData/snDescription.asp?sn=5151

it ended in Aprilc of the same year. No specific day is specified in either cases.

Do you know what the exact fieldwork dates (start and ends of interviews) are for Wave 1?

Many thanks for your help.

Dear Sergio,
The files with individual responses (wINDRESP) holds information on the date of interview, which you can use to find the date of the last interview for each wave. The only caveat is that the field period could extend beyond that point for unproductive households, but with the data we have I think that would be the nearest answer.
Apologies for the late reply to your question.

Dear Jakob,
Thanks very much for your response. Ideally I would need the exact date but I guess the latest interview date recorded in the indresp file will be a good approximation of it.
Now I do apologise for my late response, I had problems with the login in the past days!
Regards,
Sergio
