Description

Hello

I'm trying to understand the reason for what seems to be a very different distribution of the w_scghq1_dv and w_scghq2_dv variables on mental health for the BHPS wave 4 in comparison to all the other waves.

I've noted that there is a lot of "proxy" data (-7) for this wave but not for other early waves - why is this the case? Was the survey administered differently in wave 4 in some way?

Is there any systematic reason why the people who did not fill in the self-completion questionnaire in this wave would have poorer mental health than people who did complete it?

Hope you can help!

Many thanks

Emily
