Issues using variable w_fimnnet_dv in COVID-19 dataset jk_wave
I am currently analyse the COVID-19 dataset, including the jk (2019) wave. I want to include a variable for income (jk_fimnnet_dv) but it appears to not be available in the jk wave. Could you let me know if an income variable is included in the Jk (2019) wave?

The jk file combines the second part of the wave 10 fieldwork and the first part of the wave 11 fieldwork. When it was released together with the Covid data in 2020 the mainstage data from these wave were still not available, in other words, the jk file included some information not yet released at that point and otherwise not available. However, currently you can access the mainstage data and link to the Covid-19 data not only from waves 10 and 11, but also from waves 12 and 13. The decision will depend on the waves of Covid-19 you want to use and your linkage strategy.
I hope it helps.
