height and weight data
I would like to access height and weight data in BHPS and Understanding Society. I can find the data in BHPS (waves N and P) and Understanding Society Wave 1, but not in Wave 2. Is this because it has not been added yet? - since it is no longer self-reported? - I wonder if/when it will be available?

Self-reported height/weight have so far only been collected at Wave 01.
Later this year we are planning to release the data from the nurse visit that followed the Wave 02 interview for the majority of the general population sample. This dataset will have height/weight measured by a nurse (and a lot of other health data). The equivalent data for the BHPS sample were collected after Wave 03 (to be released at the end of this year).
