I am a Sociologist at the DemoSoc Research Group (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) I'm currently doing research on gender differences in graduates early labour market trajectory. Among the controls to introduce in my analysis, I am considering a summary measure of cognitive ability. I see that there are many variables that were generated in Wave 3. Was there any attempt to summarise them in a single measure, or to reduce the dimensionality of the analysis?
Thanks for your attention
And kind regards

In addition to the raw data from this module a set of derived variables is included, you can find the list here: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/term/cognitive-ability/term/derived-variables?search_api_views_fulltext=cognitive , but no single measure of cognitive ability is available.
