I am the Head of Data Science at the Behavioural Insights Team and we are working on a project for the Government Equalities Office and are interested in the connection between gender, parental aspirations & educational attainment.

To our knowledge the only NPD-USOC linkage has been at Wave 1, and the relevant questions on parental aspirations/expectations were only asked in subsequent waves. We were therefore wondering whether there are plans to link the NPD to waves other than Wave 1, and if so when that might happen?

Dear Daniel,

This page describes the linkages we are planning and the stages they are at:

I will find out if there is a timescale for future linkages.

However, you may be able to use the data we have already linked as you can match respondents between waves. If you need help with this please let us know.

Best wishes,

Dear Daniel,

The Wave 4 linkage is close to completion, and the current estimate is of weeks rather than months. I hope that is helpful.

Best wishes,
