Description

Hello,
From my understanding, b_mvever and b_mvyr refer to new entrants only; however, some people who have data on these also have a valid value in wave 1. Can you explain why this is the case?
Many thanks in advance!
Carolina

Hi Carolina,

These happen when the person was interviewed by proxy in the last wave. The "never interviewed/new entrant" filter does not apply to them as proxy is not considered to be a full interview.

Best wishes,
Alita
