oprlg, oprlg0 and oprlg1 in three waves
I am seeking a possibility to see patterns of religious conversion in USoc, namely which respondents have indicated current religion (oprlg1) that were different from their upbringing religion (oprlg0). However, I see that in all three waves, oprlg0 was asked only if a respondent answered he/she had no current religion (oprlg=2). It thus only reveals the upbringing religious background for non-religious respondents.
I would like to know if it is possible to see the data of upbringing religion for those who were religious and indicated a current religion. I would also like to know if such information is asked and available in past BHPS respondents who were also brought into USoc. There is a variable wOPRLG6 in BHPS wave 13 and 15, but with very limited valid cases that were only applicable to new N.I. respondents.
Thank you very much.

Your interpretation of the metadata for OPRLG0 is correct
So about losing a religion. We will pass your on query on to the questionnaire team for when they next review the content.
