wave 6 - individual records apparently unmatched to household records
When merging wave 6 individual respondents(all f_indresp records) to wave 6 houshold respondents (all f_hhresp records) using f_hidp as key, I fail to find the corresponding hh for 799 individuals. Which never happens in the other waves. How can this be explained?

there were always some individuals for whom we do not have a household interview. Until Wave 6 this was the case only for a small number of cases so it was decided to supress the individual interviews. In Wave 6 the number was quite substantial so the decision was made to not exclude the individual interviews when there is no household interview record.
Hope this clarifies.
