end date of union and how the union ended
I have a question about the Family histories data of BHPS (fertility.dta).
When I crosstab end1 (the reason for ending union) and stop_date1, I see that there is also a date assigned for the unions which are not ended (i.e. end1=6 "currently together). Then, I wonder what stop_date1 stands for, in the case of the unions which are not ended. Is it simply the last time of observation for this unions?

There is no BHPS file called fertility.dta. My guess is that you are referring to the file family.dta. This file is available as UKDA Study Number 5629 and was produced by Chiara Pronzato and not by the BHPS data team. Please contact the data owner, Chiara Pronzato. I am guessing you have looked at the accompanying user guide.
