Description

To whom it may concern

I would like to conduct a study comparing women with children (group 1) to women without children (group 2). What are the variables that might help me define each group and what is the response rate to these variables?

thank you

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.

Dear Amwaj,

You can use nchild_dv which gives you the number of own children in the household, including natural children, adopted children and step children, under age of 16. You can also consider using ndepchl_dv, depending on what you need for your research question. Ndepchl_dv gives you the number of own dependent children in the household. This uses the Department for Work and Pension (DWP)'s definition of a dependent child.

Best wishes,
Understanding Society User Support Team
