Description

I would like to know whether it is possible to know the year and month of birth of household respondents' parents. In particular, for adults whose have parents who are still alive (but who do not necessarily live with them), is it possible to know the parents' year and month of birth? If not, what would you recommend that I do to try and get this information?

Many thanks.

We do collect data on family networks every other wave from Wave 1 onwards including parents' age, see e.g.

No plans at the moment to collect parents' date of birth.
