Inapplicable responses are so high for academic qualification- BHPS cohort of Understanding Society
After combining wave 2-5 of Understanding Society (US) the -8 (inapplicable)responses of the variable w_qfhigh_dv become 16 percent. But, when I keep only pids that trace back to BHPS cohort, the -8 responses for 2-5 waves of US become more than 72 percent. Apparently, respondents from BHPS in Understanding Society have mostly inapplicable responses to academic qualification w_qfhigh_dv. Any thoughts or clarification on this?

You are correct the BHPS respondents were not asked the initial conditions questions and so this derived variable which is based on that is missing for them. Please read the explanation in the online documentation that has been provided by our data management team - it is very useful. https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/wave/2/datafile/b_indresp/variable/b_qfhigh_dv
