Description

Greetings,

We are interested in tracing all participants that have moved house across Waves 1, 2, 3 and the upcoming 4. We have applied for secure access so we can assess this using the postcode grid references, however in the meantime we are looking for advice on:

IDENTIFYING MOVERS

1. For estimating movers while we wait for secure access, the only variable I can find for this is xwhist in XWAVEDAT, however this variable does not allow us to see what type of sample members (i.e. permanent, original or temporary) did the moving. Are there other variables that can be used to assess movers without secure access? Also when I do this for Waves 1-3 I get (what seem to me to be) very large numbers 560 (FNN), 2,399 (FNS), 2,177 (FSN). Could this be correct?

2. When we have secure access, is there an easy method to determine movers of different sample members (i.e. permanent, original or temporary)? Are there any resources that could help us do this?

DIFFERENT SAMPLE MEMBERS

3. Is there any difference is what is collected for different types of adult sample members (i.e. permanent, original or temporary)? IE are they all eligible for the interview and nurse health assessment if they reside in the household (for temporary) or not (for permanent and original)?

4. Are there identifiers that label a sample member as permanent, original or temporary?

Many thanks for your help,
Tarra

Sample status (sampst) is wave-specific information that can be found on the W_INDALL file

Are there other variables that can be used to assess movers without secure access?

For further info about the dynamic nature ot the study, plese consult the user guide and associated design working papers. For stats on moves the BHPS bibliography could be consulted.

Please see health assessment user guide for a full description of the selection criteria.
