Description

I am interested in using the Wealth, assets and debt module in my research. However I cannot find this data on the UK data service website. I have downloaded the "Understanding Society: Waves 1-9, 2009-2018 and Harmonised BHPS: Waves 1-18, 1991-2009" dataset, but I cannot find this data in there, nor do I know which other dataset to look in. Would be grateful for any help in locating this data. I am interested in the latest data available.

Hello,

Have you read our User Guide? Please take a look at that.
https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/user-guides/main-survey-user-guide/

The easiest way to find out the variables you are looking for is using our variable search facility:
https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation
You can search via the Index Terms tab, or key word search by writing words in the search box. The search results will show a list of variables matching the word you typed and next to the variable name you will see which datafile it is in.

You can also search the questionnaires which are pdf files, so you can search across the whole document.

If you need any help with data management - how to put the files together, you can try our online Moodle training course.
