matlv: Had period of maternity/paternity leave
I have just checked the questionnaire for waves involved and noticed this question is only asked when:
If (ff_ivlolw = 1) // interviewed at prior wave
And If (EmpChk = 1 & Ff_JBSTAT > 1 & Ff_JBSTAT <> MIS|DK|REF) // continuously employed since last interview
And If (JbSamR = 1) // working for the same employer
And If (GRIDVARIABLES.NewMum = 1 | GRIDVARIABLES.NewDad = 1) // new mother or new father
I do not understand why you would limit this question to people who are "working for the same employer" since last interview?

- Status changed from New to Resolved
- Assignee changed from Victoria Nolan to Muzhi ZHOU
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
- Private changed from Yes to No
Many thanks for your enquiry. This may have been done to reflect maternity and paternity leave rules at the time the questionnaire was developed, which have since changed. We plan to update the questionnaire form wave 9 so it is not limited to people who are working for the same employer.
Best wishes, Victoria.
