Description

I previous used understanding society data when it was up to Wave 5 i.e. wave 1-5, in the hhresp data they had a variable called month defining month and year( jan yr1---dec yr1, jan yr2...dec yr2), i.e a_month for wave 1, b_month for wave 2.

Now I have downloaded all waves (up to the present wave) and I can't find the variable "month" in all waves. What is the new variable name if the variable still exists, if not what/which variables will give the same information.

Hello Oarabile,

I can find a_month, b_month,... variables in a_hhresp, b_hhresp in the most recently released version data. I checked this using the following code:
foreach w in a b c d e f g h {
qui use *month using "$m/`w'_hhresp.dta", clear
d *month
}

When did you download the data?

Best wishes,
Alita

Hi Alita
Thanks for your response.
I downloaded June 2019. Is this the right data UKDA-6849-stata?
Previously i used hhresp.dta but in this data it is hhresp_ip.dta

Regards
Oarabile

No. That is for the Innovation Panel.

This is what you need: https://beta.ukdataservice.ac.uk/datacatalogue/studies/study?id=6614
