Description

Many thanks for your suggestion Jakob.

On a related matter, i.e a variation between results
in Understanding Society wave 1 and British Household
Panel wave 18.

I have run a frequency in Understanding Society wave 1 looking
at age bands, filtering on employees using:

Weight: a_indpxus_xw
Filter: a_jlsemp = 1 (employee)
Variable: a_agegr13_dv

This has produced a rather strange result when looking
at the '65 years or older' age band with 48.2% (7,107) of the responses coded as employees.
given.

To put this into context, the percentage of people who are coded as employees in their thirties is considerably
lower, '30-34 years old' account for 3.8% (559). While '35-39 years old' account for 4.4% (653)
of the total responses received (14,759).

Regards,

Ray Storry

In current. Is there a similar distinction in the BHPS between current and last job?
Ray

Yes, BHPS is the source of these two variables.

Can I check the variable for current job in BHPS, please.
Ray

The variable names are the same. Please be aware that the wave prefix on BHPS is simply a letter, whereas it is a letter plus and underscore on UKHLS.
