Description

Hi there,

I'm looking to obtain the frequencies and percentages of the number of people on universal credit (UC) in each wave during the COVID-19 surveys. I have looked at the ff_ucredit variable which seems to only record whether someone has been on UC in ANY wave rather than just the current one. The ucredit variable (and the b65 one) also only look at whether someone is newly on UC during that wave but it does not check if someone previously on UC is still on it. The ff_ucredit variable also doesn't check this because it asks if they have been on UC in ANY wave rather than if there has been a change in status. I think I have undertsood these variables correctly but please let me know if I haven't. If I wanted to work out the frequency and percentage of people on UC in each wave (not cumulative across waves), how would I go about doing this using the available questions?
