"Ever divorced" and "Ever widowed" in Understanding Society
Hi, is there, anywhere, a derived variable for 'ever divorced' or 'ever widowed' and ages at last divorce or last widowhood? Or do these need to be derived from the entire data series? I can't help thinking many people must have created these variables even if they are not in the main datasets and am wondering whether this is something I really need to do all over again - or (I am hoping) they are lurking somewhere and I have just missed them, thanks.

These are currently not available. We are in the process of producing partnership history files and we will release these variables with that file. We are also looking into whether these can be released every year with the main data release.

We are very sorry for the delay in responding to this.
We are aiming to provide these in the separate partnership history file in April. Those who have never (non-marital) cohabited or been married/civil partnership will not be included in this file.
