Description

I am interested in exploring the information related to respondents' language in Understanding Society.

It is clear from the documentation that in case of adults (age 16+):
- there was a question on childhood language in Wave 2
- there were questions whether English is the respondent's first language and if not, on difficulty in speaking/reading/understanding English (Wave 3 and 5)

Can I clarify that there is no question asking if the respondents speaks a language other than English at home?

Moreover, is there any question which would indicate what language is used by respondent's children or by the household in general?

I would greatly appreciate your help on this matter.

YES, you are correct.

Moreover, is there any question which would indicate what language is used by respondent's children or by the household in general?

No, there is not. But there are variables which indicate whether the respondent was interviewed in a non-English language: IVTRANS, IVLANG, IVINTLANG.

Best wishes,
On behalf of the team.
