Description

I have been running a query vis a cross-tabulation between _ff_bentype09 BY w_bendis8 filtering on w_ff_bentype09 = 0 (they said they were not in receipt of the IIDB at the previous interview).

For Waves 3-5 I am getting a total population figure of between 12,700 and c15,000. But in Wave 6 the population jumps to c30K. Why is this the case.

Hello Ray,

The filtering of this question BENDIS was changed in Wave 6 as you can check from the questionnaire. As a result everyone was asked and so there are no inapplicables (-8). Anyone who did not mention this are coded as 0 "not mentioned".

Best wishes,
Alita

Is there anyway I get comparable bases between W1-5 and W6 on the bendis question

#4 Updated by Stephanie Auty almost 3 years ago

Dear Ray,

One solution to this would be to code everyone who was not asked at waves 1-5 (i.e. -8, inapplicable) as not mentioned (0); this will then be comparable to the wave 6 data.

Alternatively, you could create the same filter for wave 6 as was used in the previous waves, by using the variables f_bendis1-12 (if any of them are mentioned then BType would have been 3 if it had been asked separately), f_jbstat and f_health.

This page gives the definition of the universe for a_bendis8, and it is the same in waves 2-5:
