Description

Hi,

I'm using the British Household Panel data 1991-2007 in my master thesis. I'm especially interested in the survey questions regarding the respondants' attitudes towards gender equality in the household. This includes the variables named (w)opfama, (w)opfamb, (w)opfamc, (w)opfamd, (w)opfame and (w)opfamf. I am wondering if there is any documentation or litteratur which reasons why exactly these questions were formulated and what kind of gender dimentions they were thought, back in 1991, to tap. I have already been in contact With the UK Data Service Support, but they I have could not find details on the origin of these questionnaire items. There is no dedicated user forum for the BHPS. The UK Data Service therefore suggested that I should contact you. I have searched your existing queries but could not find any queries relating to these gender attitude variables. I hope that you can provide me some background information on these gender related questions. Thank you in advance.
