Description

I have used the variable w_jbnssec3_dv in the file w_indresp for a number of projects but in the new data release there are some extra values from 7 to 12 in this variable that aren't labelled. They also appear in the online documentation for this variable (https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/variable/jbnssec3_dv). Am I missing something obvious about these values?

Many thanks,
Nicole

Hi Nicole,
sorry for that. We have changed the programmes and have overlooked a coding mistake on this variable. It will also affect occurances of jlnssec3_dv. The higher levels of aggregation for the NSSEC are all fine.
We will fix this issue with the next release. In the meantime, please use the following fix:

recode w_j*nssec_dv (1/12 = 1) (13/20 = 2) (21/35 = 3), gen(w_j*nssec3_dv)

Thanks for making us aware of the error.
Best wishes,
Gundi
