Description

Hi, quick question. I am just wondering if either (or both) of these datasets contain variables on social class, similar to those present in the 1958 and 1970 birth cohort studies? I have not been able to find any but wanted to ask before completely ruling it out. Thanks!

Hi,

There are quite a few measures of class in the study but the most widely available across the BHPS and UKHLS is the NS-SEC, e.g. jb/jlnssec_dv, manssec8_dv, panssec8_dv. We are currently experiencing technical issues with our website, so, unfortunately, I won't be able to post a link to them on our website, but you can look for these variables in indresp and xwavedat data files.

Best wishes,
Piotr Marzec
