Description

I am currently working with the data matched with partners but I am wondering if there is a way to match data with partners who do not live within the same household.

Many thanks for your enquiry. The Understanding Society team is looking into it and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

We aim to respond to simple queries within 48 hours and more complex issues within 7 working days. While we will aim to keep to this response times due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) related situation it may take us longer to respond.

Best wishes,
Understanding Society User Support Team

Dear Laura,

You can identify partners who do not live with the respondent only in cases where we captured the two living together in one household at least in one wave. You can then use the w_ppid partner’s identifier (that is, partner’s pidp) to link the information about the partner. In you further analyses you might find useful the datasets included in the Understanding Society: Marital and Cohabitation Histories, 1991-2019 release (study number 8473, https://beta.ukdataservice.ac.uk/datacatalogue/doi/?id=8473#!#1 , user guide: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/sites/default/files/downloads/documentation/mainstage/user-guides/user_guide_partnership_history.pdf) I would also recommend checking examples 7 “How to match information of any two household members?”and 8 “USING EGOALT FILES” of our Moodle Introduction to Understanding Society course (https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/help/training/online/introduction-course)

Best wishes,
