Description

Dear Madame or Sir,

i am a stundent and am using the bhps and ukhls datasets in a project.

I have a question concerning the merge of the waves of the BHPS and the UKHLS.
We are using the Code that is shared online public to merge the datasets across waves and wanted to use the vote_7
variable for our analysis.
But when we used the loop that is included in the merge, the resulting variable vote_7 has a category 7 in wave 7 of BHPS with 700 observations and there is the info of a subsample which we can not find in the data.
Also, the merge led to 0 observations in wave 8 of the BHPS, but we can not identify the error for that.
Could you maybe tell us how to solve that problem or how to handle it?

THank you for your time and help.

Best wishes,

Jan
