Description

Hello,

this query is in regards to the recording practices of 'leavers' in variable lvwhy in the BHPS (1991 to 2009 data).

We have found cases where an is individual being recorded as 'deceased' (variable lvwhy), after one or more years of being recorded as 'other', 'don't know' or 'current' - without responding to any survey questions.

Is it possible to get any information on the actual year of death for these individuals, or are there any estimates/rules for what to assume? In other words, is it likely that the individual has indeed been 'non-response' during these years or rather deceased but unreported?

I've consulted the forum issues #216 & #215.

Many thanks in advance!
