I am interested in identifying individuals who have moved home during the 11 available waves of UKHLS. As I would like pre- as well as post move data and the mymth;mvyr;mever are only asked to new joiners, I have started using the event variables to identify moves but they do not seem to be continued in later waves.
I tried to follow up on some of the publications linked on your website that have investigated movers but the access is always denied.
My questions are whether you could suggest any particular variable/s that would be suitable to derive house moves from?
Moreover I wanted to enquire about gaininbg access to the publications on your website. I am PhD student at the University of Cambridge if that should help to identify why my access is denied in the first place.
Thank you very muich in advance. I am looking forwad to hearing from you!

Thank you for the suggestion to look at the addrmov_dv variable.
I have a follow up question please. Addrmov_dv requires two consecutive waves as it is asking respondents for moves since the last WAVE; there is another variable 'x_adcts' which indicates moves since the last interview wich sounded euqally interesting and perhabs a bit more comprehensive as it does not require consecutive reponses. However, the number of movers I can identify between waves 3 -6 is a lot LOWER for 'x_adcts' than it is using 'addrmov_dv'
Additionally, answers are often very different e.g. adcts shows -8 (inapplicable) but addrmov_dv shows 'mover' - This made me wonder how addrmov_dv is derived and why these differences occur. Would you recommedn using one variable over the other or both in conjunction to identify all housemoves?
Any input would be really appreciated!
