Description

Good afternoon,

I apologise in advance if this is simply down to my inexperience with the data set, but I'm trying to download Wave 7 in order to analyse the variables Nutrition, Scawembs (mood) and Exercise.
I've registered with the UK Data Service and have downloaded: "SN: 6614 Understanding Society: Waves 1-7, 2009-2016 and Harmonised BHPS: Waves 1-18, 1991-2009", but I cannot find the variables I am looking for.

Please would you let me know where I am going wrong?

Many thanks,

Emma

Dear Emma,

All of the variables from these modules will be in the g_indresp file, as this datafile contains all responses from the individual interviews - the files are not split by module.

Looking at the nutrition module, this information is given as a link at the end of the question, giving the variable name and datafile name: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/wave/7/questionnaire-module/nutrition_w7

Not listed are the variables for the questions where is it possible to code more than one response (the bread and dairy questions) which are named g_usbread1-g_usbread7 and g_usdairy1-g_usdairy6.

The other modules you are interested in are documented here:
https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/wave/7/questionnaire-module/scawemwbs_w7
https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/wave/7/questionnaire-module/exercise_w7

Best wishes,
