Description

Hi, I was looking into job history file (JOBHIST) for BHPS. I was wondering why so many respondents in the main individual record file (INDRESP) does not show up in job history file. Even after restricting the sample to those working on the interview reference week, still more than half of them do not show up in job history file. I was wondering if this module was asked on the subsample, and if it was, then how the subsample was selected.

Thanks!

Dear Yujung Whang,

The Job History file is only for those respondents who have changed jobs in the last year – so all those who started their current job more than a year ago will not be in the job history file.

You can see the routing for these questions in the questionnaires, for example at wave 18 you can download the questionnaire at https://www.iser.essex.ac.uk/bhps/documentation/pdf_versions/survey_docs/wave18/index.html and on pages 264 – 265 you can see the routing questions for the job history questions, J1 - J9 check.

Best wishes,
