Social class for unemployed individual
I am using the BHPS and I would like to know why do unemployed individuals report a social class (e.g skilled, unskilled or managerial professions...). I looked at the previous waves to identify the 'previous social class' of those individuals but it did not match.
Thank you for your help

I used wave c , d and e (years 1995, 2000 and 2005) of BHPS.
My dependent variable is amount of debt owed.
The dependent variables include demographic economic variables (age, marital status, dividends, financial situation...). The model also control for unemployed individuals since some of them declare to have "gross earnings". Beside, these same individuals also have "social classes2 imputed to them (i.e. skilled,unskilled or partially skilled occupations)
I used tobit model and fixed-effets as methodologies.
