Importance of Britishness to sense of self
Apologies this is a very basic question.
I am using USoc Wave 1 data to examine how important Britishness is to a sense of self (a_britid). I have recoded the data as I am looking at people aged 18-30 with parents from different ethnic groups or grandparents with different countries of birth.
In terms of the whole data-set, I don't understand what would make the respondents inapplicable. The guide suggests: 'if (GRIDVARIABLES.ModeType = 1 & CASISTART.scac = 1 thru 3)|GRIDVARIABLES.ModeType = 2 (Mode is face-to-face and has agreed to self-completion OR mode is telephone). This means 58.55% of respondents were not asked? Can someone explain simply please? Sorry I don't have any colleagues available to ask and I don't want to make any errors with the data I can use, which currently looks to favour feelings of Britishness being important to the respondents I am examining, hence why I am interested in the majority who have been excluded. Many thanks for any and all assistance.
