Description

Hi,

I was wondering whether you would be able to give me some more information on how the variable “hiqual_dv” is coded in the harmonised BHPS (https://beta.ukdataservice.ac.uk/datacatalogue/studies/study?id=7453#!/details)? I could not find any concrete information in the documentation or website.

Concretely, I was wondering whether people with further education (but not a degree) such as nurses, or those doing higher vocational training etc. are categorised as being under “Other education” (hiqual_dv==5) or under “other higher degree” (hiqual_dv==2)?

Thanks a lot in advance and best,

Pascale

Hi Pascale,
please take a look at the posts https://iserswww.essex.ac.uk/support/issues/551 and https://iserswww.essex.ac.uk/support/issues/399 in this forum. The first post includes a PDF that has a look-up for hiqual_dv in the UKHLS waves (2009+). The first post describes the derivation of hiqual_dv in the hBHPS. That should answer your question. If not, you'd have to look into how the BHPS input variables have been derived, see Volume A of the BHPS standalone user guide/ documentation for the variables $qfachi $qfedhi. If that also does not answer the question, please do let us know and we'll have to dig up the programmes that were used to derive variables on the BHPS. It may take a it longer due to the vacation period and this being historic code...

Note that the link you have sent is to the SL Acorn Typology to UKHLS-household identifier look-up file; the file does not contain the hiqual_dv variable.

Best wishes,
Gundi
