Is there a variable for the number of children living outside the household?
Is there a variable which indicates the number of children a respondent has living outside the household? I am interested in children aged 16+ who the questions about exchanges of help with children refer to (chaid1 etc). (I would also ideally like to know the age and sex of the children, but presumably I would have to extract this information from the birth histories.)
I am working with the BHPS-UKHLS harmonised file.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
