Children in Wave 1 of BHPS
I'd like to be able to track adults in Wave 2 of BHPS who were children in wave 1. There doesn't seem to be a child table for wave 1, and the indresp data only contains information for people aged 16+.
Is it possible to separately identify wave 1 children in this way?

Basic information about all household members of households that responded/enumerated are recorded in the file bW_indall (a for Wave 1, b for Wave 2,..). If you want to identify children this is the file to use. All those who are 16+ year old are eligible for adult interviews and if they agree to participate then their responses are recorded in bW_indresp file - this file will not include anyone below the age of 16. From onwards Wave 4 of the BHPS, 11-15 year olds were eligible for a short self-completion youth questionnaire and if they agreed to participate those responses are recorded in bW_youth.
Hope this helps.
