Creating a family group for profile of parents
I am currently working on a project looking at work and care in families in East London. As part of the project, we would like to create a profile of parents in the UK. Specifically, we are interested in characteristics of two-parent households which include a co-resident child aged 0-4.
So far I have merged hhresp and indresp datasets for wave i and selected respondents who have indicated they are living with a spouse (i_livesp_dv) or cohabiting (i_cohab_dv). I have also selected both i_nch02_dv (children aged 0-2 in hh) i_nch34_dv (children aged 3-4 in hh). I am fairly sure this is not the most elegant way to go about this, and I am not sure that this approach will provide the sample I am looking for. It is missing, for example, data on ethnicity.
Might you be able to help, please?
