Description

Hello,
I'm trying to find a way to use wJHSTAT to find out whether a participant worked at the same firm through all their labour spells. I have a few questions:
--wJHSTAT is only in BHPS. Is there a variable comparable to wJHSTAT in UKHLS?
--wJHSTAT has a value of 1 if someone has a different job at the same workplace. However, what happens if the person has the same job as the same workplace? Is wJHSTAT not applicable then? I'm not able to find this answer in the documentation.
--More broadly, is there a way using BHPS + UKHLS panel data to find who was employed at the same firm during every employment spell?

Hi Chris,

Please see our response to #1218, a similar query to yours. That is not a complete answer for this query or query 1218, but it shows the route to follow. Unfortunately there is no quick answer.

It may be useful to sign up for our JISC mail for data users to discuss analysis issues related to our study. To do that email

Best wishes,
Alita
