Data inconsistency

Hi, I have been using UKHLS dataset, and I found a few (six cases I found) proxy interview information is missing in wave 1.
These people appear in later waves, and were recorded as being (proxy) interviewed in wave 1
However, they do not show up in any of wave 1 dataset.

I have a list of pidp that I found (I may email them to you)

Could you explain about these cases in more detail?

Thanks !!

Thanks for identifying these cases. xwaveid is the file that provides interview outcomes for all waves. So, I identified the wave 1 proxy cases in this file and tried to match those cases with a_indall. All 3262 wave 1 proxy cases reported in this file were in a_indall. So, I cannot find these 6 cases. Instead of sending us the pidp of these 6 cases if you send us the code you used to identify these cases (or explain how you identified these cases), then I can investigate further.
Best wishes,
