Description

Hi,

I am sorry if the answer is obvious but I just cannot find it. Is there a urban_dv equivalent for BHPS data? I am looking for a simple urban rural dichotomous variable which would cover all regions of UK across the waves of BHPS and Understanding Society.

Many thanks

Hello Sait,

This variable is not available in the UKHLS-BHPS harmonised datafiles. The BHPS harmonisation user guide is here https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/sites/default/files/downloads/documentation/mainstage/user-guides/bhps-harmonised-user-guide.pdf

The urban rural variable for the BHPS is available in a separate dataset (look at the UKDS website for this dataset SN6032), this has not been checked for harmonisation issues.

Best wishes,
Alita
