Description

Dear all,

I am dealing with the cohabitation histories of UKHLS (first wave) and the spells of cohabitation within the panel.

At first, I would like to know whether I can detect a "not-dissolved" union by checking the end date of the spell of cohabitation and verifying if it is equal to -8, which means inapplicable.

Provided that this is the case, I am currently dealing with the cohabitation histories of couples. There are often inconsistencies about the starting date of the union between the two members. Which member do you think I have to refer in order to have the most reliable information?

Thank you and best,
Lydia

Hi Lydia,

Yes you are correct in assuming that cohabitation spells with end month and year = -8 are ongoing cohabitation spells.

Best wishes,
Alita
