Description

Good morning,

I am trying to reconstruct the household members' relationships in the COVID-19 study. While the COVID-19 study documentation does not mention this explicitly and only focuses on how to identify couples, in principle I could use egoalt files from previous main waves of the study (e.g., wave 11, so k_egoalt file) and identify household members trough pidp and apidp variables. Is there any issue in proceeding this way?

Thank you in advance.
Best,
Laura

Dear Laura,

For waves 1-2 of the Covid-19 survey linking this from the mainstage data (for different people the nearest mainstage interview might be in different waves) is one possible strategy, and the method you're proposing sounds good. For wave 3-9 of the Covid-19 Survey you can consider using the Household relationships module (see the questionnaires https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/covid-19/questionnaires/), you can also link this back to wave 1-2 for some people.

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,
