Hello Leo,

I'll ask the data team about this issue. In the meantime, you could try using the "Get your code" tab where the code should be displayed immediately. Then, you can copy your code using the "Copy" tab option.

If this doesn't work, please share the variable names you're using, and I'll send you the code.

I hope this information is helpful.

Best wishes,

Hello Roberto,

thank you for the fast reply. I have tried using the tab, but the code does not work for me in stata. One issue being that I do not fully understand the adjustments I am supposed to make in the first part, but also stata gives me error codes like "/ is not a valid command name".
The variables I am interested in are: sclfsato, jbsat, jbsemp, jhsemp, jbbgy, jbstat, jsboss, jspart, jssize, wkaut1, wkaut2, wkaut3, wkaut4, wkaut5 - plus the set of commonly used variables.
Thank you!

Leo

Hello Leo,
I’m attaching two text files with the syntax code in long and wide formats. The data file produced will be at the individual level and cover all ages, irrespective of the variables requested. You can, of course, restrict the sample for analysis based on your needs/preferences after you have created the file.

Regarding the code, you will need to adjust:
  • Replace “where” with the file path of the working folder (where any temporary files created by this code will be stored) eg: c:\ukhls\temp
    • cd "where"
  • Replace "where" with the folder path where the data has been downloaded and unzipped eg: c:\ukhls_data\UKDA-6614-stata\stata\stata13_se\ukhls
    • global ukhls "where\UKDA-6614-stata\stata\stata13_se\ukhls"
  • Replace "where" with the file path of the folder where you want to store the final dataset produced by this code. eg: c:\ukhls\results
    • global outputpath "where"
  • The file produced by this code will be named as below. If you want to change the name do it here replacing the name within quotation marks.
    • local outputfilename "UKHLS_long_hij"
  • By default, the data will be extracted from the waves whose letter prefixes are written below and merged. If you want a different selection of waves, make the change here
    • local allWaves = "h i j"
    • Let's say you want information from Waves 1 to 13, then you will need to change the previous bullet to: local allWaves = "a b c d e f g h i j k l m".

Other than these modifications, you shouldn't need to make any further changes.

I hope this information is helpful.

Best wishes,

Hello Leo,
I tested the code on my PC, and it works fine. I’ve attached a log of my session named “2066”. However, please note that there is an error in the last line of the code. You’ll need to remove “$syntax;”, as it shouldn’t be there.

Are you running the code as a .do file or in the command window? If you’re using the latter, it doesn’t recognise the commands, resulting in these errors. You can view a record of this session in the attached log file named “2066 (option2)”.

I hope this information is helpful.

Best wishes,

Hello Roberto,

thank you for your help, it has worked now. My key mistake was indeed using the command window, as I was not aware that I need to use a .do file. Thank you a lot for your enagagement!

Best regards
Leo
