Description

Hi,

I try to understanding the share of the individuals who move away from their parents in the following wave. I use anwstat to understand whether the ego and the alter live together in the next wave. The data documentation states the following:

"Alter’s residence at next wave. Indicates whether a pair of current co-resident household members (the Ego and the Alter) continue to be co-resident in the next wave of interview. For those who are not co-resident in the next wave, the indicator differentiates between whether the alter is in a different household, the alter is part of a non-responding household, the alter is part of household that was not fielded or the alter has died."

I want to ask how they are coded, if the household drops out from the survey (meaning that it is not possible to know if they leave together).

Many thanks!

If the whole household drops out of the survey and so we do not know whether they are still living together then because the EGO will not be in an interviewed household in the next wave their code will be "3 in non-interviewed HH". In this case if you match EGO and ALTER's next wave status both should be 3.

Thank you very much for your reply.

Just to be on the safe side then, I would like to ask whether this statement in the data documentation is not completely correct for all cases:
"Alter’s residence at next wave. Indicates whether a pair of current co-resident household members (the Ego and the Alter) continue to be co-resident in the next wave of interview. For those who are not co-resident in the next wave, the indicator differentiates between whether the alter is in a different household, the alter is part of a non-responding household, the alter is part of household that was not fielded or the alter has died."

My understanding is that if the alter is part of a non-responding household, then they are not necessarily non-co-resident with the ego in the next wave. And I can differentiate these two, by checking if ego and alter have both on of the following: a)part of a non-responding household or b) part of a household that was not fielded. Is that correct?

Many thanks!

If the Ego is in a responding household next wave but the alter is not, then they are necessarily in different households. But if both are in non-responding households next wave then they may or may not be in the same household.
