Description

Hi,

Some versions of the USOC documentation include mention of a 'net household income' variable (a_fihhmnnet_dv - see e.g. https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/files/data/documentation/wave1/User_manual_Understanding_Society_Wave_1.pdf, P32). However, these variables do not exist in any of the hhresp databases.

Were there problems with these variables, resulting in their removal? Or alternatively are they only provide with the special license data?

Best,
Robert de Vries

P.S. I may have asked this question before, if so apologies.

We are currently developing a new method for deriving net income variables for release later this year. The Wave 1 net income variables initially released have since been withdrawn while we we carry out this work.

Thanks Jakob (and thanks for the quick reply!).

I don't suppose there is any way of getting access to these variables just for a quick provisional calculation I need to do?

Best,
Rob
