Description

Hi,

What is the definition used for the derived lone parent flag "nonepar_dv"?

I've been unable to find this information elsewhere - am I missing a source for definitions of derived variables? Apologies if there is an obvious source I'm missing!

Thanks very much,
Olly

Hi Olly,

The variable level documentation available online includes information on which variables are used in the construction of derived variables: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/wave/6/datafile/f_indall/variable/f_respm16_dv

Thanks Stephen,

I can't find this documentation for nonepar_dv

Does the documentation cover how the variable is derived as well as what other variables it is derived from?

Thanks again,
Olly

Dear Oliver,

Apologies, I seem to have posted the wrong link. Please try https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/wave/6/datafile/f_hhresp/variable/f_nonepar_dv

Under Origin it says:
Uses F_RELATIONSHIP_DV on data file F_EGOALT
Uses F_RESPF16_DV F_RESPM16_DV on data file F_INDALL

The variable is based on whether the respondent has a partner in their relationship variable, and whether they are a mother or a father of a child under 16.
