Description

hello,

I am planning to use the sibling relationship items (asking about behaviours towards and from a sibling e.g. hit, kick or push you) for my research and I am trying to find out if these items are from a previous measure or if they were developed for understanding society. Would anyone be able to help as I am struggling to find this information?

Hello Georgina,

The Study has some questions regarding siblings' relationships. For household members aged 10-15 years, you will find them in the "w_youth" datafile, every two waves (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11). You can check the questionnaire here (look for questions 14 and 15 on page 8): https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/sites/default/files/downloads/documentation/mainstage/questionnaire/wave-11/W11-youth-self-completion-questionnaire.pdf

For household members aged 16 or above, you will find them in the "w_indresp" file every two waves (3, 5, 7, 9, and 11). To find more information about the self-completion young adults' module, please check: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/wave/11/questionnaire-module/scyoungadults_w11

These questions are asked in a rotative module, therefore to see more information about the actual and planned content of the Understanding Society questionnaire, please see our Long-Term Content Plan at: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/long-term-content-plan

You can use the variable search to look up variables you might be interested in. You do not need to know precisely the variable name, you can type for example “kick” and will show any variable having the word “kick” attached to its name or label. To use variable search go to: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Hi Roberto,

Thank you for the information but unfortunately it does not answer my question. My question was on whether the questions asked are from a measure used in previous research, or whether it was a new measure designed for understanding society.

Hello Georgina,

Sorry for my misunderstanding.
They were derived from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC). For more information on the Study, please see here http://www.bristol.ac.uk/alspac/

Here you can find the questionnaire topic guide
http://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-library/sites/alspac/documents/questionnaires/questionnaire-topic-guide.pdf

For the ones you reference, please see the 12yrs 1mth questionnaire – pages 6/7 at http://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-library/sites/alspac/migrated/documents/ques-c16-all-around-me.pdf

Hope this helps.
