Description

Hi,

I am using the harmonised Understanding Society/BHPS data, where I have found height and weight information of individuals in wave 14 and 16, but it seems like the answers from wave 18 are missing? I know it exists since it has been used in previous research and there are questions about it in the questionnaire..
Can you please explain how or where to find this information, or is it simply missing in the harmonised data?

Many thanks,
Lana

Dear Lana,

The height and weight questions you can see on the questionnaire for Wave B18 are part of the youth questionnaire. These variables were not collected for adults in that wave.
