Raised by Olga Maslovskaya:
I just looked at the Wave 8 data and cannot find “device used” variable. I was wondering if it was collected but not in a public release or if it was not collected at all?

JB Note: There is a device used variable in hhsamp, for the device first used to complete the household grid. But should there also be one at the individual level (one was delivered in h_adminp_orig?

Dear Olga,

The data for this variable is received as a String and has not yet been coded. I will look into when it might be made available.

Best wishes,
