Linking BHPS - Understanding Society
I am using BHPs data and wish to link it a) to the BHPS sample households in Understanding Society, and b) use a pooled sample of BHPS and Understanding Society data as a repeated cross-section of households.
May I ask two questions about this?
1. Is there any documentation that allows me to easily check whether a BHPS variable is available in Understanding Society as well and to find out what the corresponding variable name in US is?
2. I am trying to link some information about mothers (from indresp) to their children (birthweight, date of birth...). I am having a hard time getting the kids data together because part of it seems to be located in nat_child and part in child. Is this correct?
3. With which identifiers do I merge data on mothers with their kids?
Thank you very much for your help.
