Mistake between ba_jbstat_bh ba_jbstat in Wave 1 of BHPS
I'm using the harmonized BHPS and UKHLS datasets from the UK Data Service.
I've noticed that the variables ba_jbstat_bh and ba_jbstat don't match up. (Cross-tabulation attached.) Is this intentional? There is no long-term sick category in ba_jbstat.
The reason I ask is that I have made files to create work-life histories in the BHPS and UKHLS and I want these to work going forward, so just checking this won't be changed.
