BHPS + US harmonized measure of mental well-being
I would like to know your opinion about the following issue: I am working with all the waves of BHPS + US, and I need to run some analyses on dependent variables measuring the mental well-being, psychological health or something similar.
In this sense, the only variable that I was able to find in both surveys is the Subjective wellbeing (GHQ). Is there any other variable related to this 'symptom' which is harmonized (and as such usable) in both surveys?
Thanks in advance, best, G.

You can look at the index terms pages for health: subjective wellbeing (https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/index/health-subjective-wellbeing) health: psychological characteristics (https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/index/psychological-characteristics). There are some other variables which may be useful which have been asked in both BHPS and Understanding Society, but not in every wave. The index terms pages list in which waves the variables appear.
