Description

I am Giorgio Piccitto, an Italian young research (University of Bologna). I am interested in using the data of 'Understanding society', and I would like to share with you a doubt about some variables.

Specifically, I am interested in identifying the detail of the occupations of parents and children (also if the latter do not live anymore within the same household of their parents). Is it possible to have this joint information (in other terms, both the information about familiar relation among respondent and about their occupations)?

Looking at the user guide, it would seem not possible. Do you confirm this? Maybe it is possibile (considering the sample status TSM) to identify this piece of information only for those who in a previous wave lived withinf the households with parents, and then left the house, is it correct?

Thanks a lot for your support.

Best, G.P.

Dear Giorgio,

Have you read the section of the User Guide on following rules (Section 2.2.6)? In some cases we will follow survey members if they leave the household (OSMs and PSMs), and in other cases we will not (TSMs). This section explains the differences.

We also have a question which asks for the respondent's parents' occupations when the respondent was 14. This is found in masoc90/masoc00/masoc10 and pasoc90/pasoc00/pasoc10 for Special Licence data, and the same variable names with a _cc suffix in End User Licence data, in xwavedat. Some related and useful variables are maju and paju, which record whether or not the respondent's parents were working or not when the respondent was 14.

Best wishes,
Stephanie Auty - Understanding Society User Support Officer
