Determining the missing values in the jbsoc10_cc variable.
I see in the jbsoc10_cc variable note it says: "SOC 2010 codes are [-9] missing for jobs that were already held in Wave 1 or 2 and (re-)confirmed in later waves." How does one go about replacing these missing values with the actual values. For example, one individual may have a category that is constant for all waves in the jbsoc*00*_cc variable but missing for all waves of the jbsoc*10*_cc variable. I am uncertain as there is not a perfect mapping from SOC 2000 to SOC 2010 codes. So the statement in the variable note only indicates that this individual has the same job in waves 1 and 2 as he does in future waves. What that job is, is still uncertain? Sorry if I have misunderstood something, a clarification would be a great help!
