Description

Hi!

I am currently researching ethnic pay gaps using the Understanding Society data set.

Initially I was using the a_payu variable, however this had a low level of data available for observing earnings. Therefore, I am now using the a_paynu_dv variable, however this variable has no label and I cannot find any further information on this variable in the data dictionary. I would appreciate any help on what this variable represents, e.g which question does it relate to, so I can interpret the results generated.

I greatly appreciate any help. Or guidance to using a different pay variable which may be of greater use in waves 1 to 7.

Dear Amandeep,

There is information on income estimation in section 3.4.3 of the Mainstage User Guide which you can download here: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/user-guide
