Description

Hello,

For a lot of variables in the survey, there is a value 'inapplicable' for the majority of them. Can you please explain the meaning of 'inapplicable' and if there is a way o recover that information from the observations showing that value?

Thank you very much

Not everyone gets asked every question. They only get asked the questions that are relevant to them. For example, a person who is not in paid employment will not get asked questions about her job. The value for usual monthly wage variable (PAYGU_DV) will be -8 (inapplicable) for this person.

Best wishes,
Alita
