Online variable search
I’ve just realised that the variable search on the Understanding Society website is case sensitive. When I searched for variables relating to height using Hei different results were returned from when I searched with hei.
Is this intentional? I’m not sure it’s very helpful to researchers, and wonder if it could be changed? If not, maybe a note could be added under the search box to make it clear that searches are case-sensitive.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you while we were looking into this. We discovered that there was an error causing the search facility to be case sensitive - it was not intended to be. We have now corrected this, so the search is no longer case sensitive.
Many thanks for bringing this to our attention.
