Description

Conditioning on the variable `wJBSTATT` (https://www.iser.essex.ac.uk/bhps/documentation/volb/wave18/rindresp18.html#RJBSTATT) being well-defined (i.e. non-negative) has only negligible impact for most waves of the BHPS. However, for wave `R`, the age distribution is altered significantly as shown in the attached plot of the complementary cumulative distribution function. Do you have any idea why this might be the case?
