I hope you are well.

I am doing a project from using your Wave 5, Individual Adult Interview Data e_indresp. Within the questionnaire I am trying to find the point in which you asked or involved the question of:

e_mastat_dv - De facto marital status


e_urban_dv - Urban or rural area, derived

They both state that they are on this datafile (e_indresp), however, when I try and find them both, they do not seem to be within this. Could you tell me where I could find these in questionnaire form? Is it something to do with them being _dv?
I am putting an appendix together for variables I have investigated and I would very much like for these two to be within this.

Thank you for your time,

Kirsty Tiernan

Dear Kirsty,
these variables are "derived variables" - indicated by the _dv suffix - and as such not asked in the questionnaire. The documentation of what these variables measure and which information is used to create them is provided in the online variable-level documentation. See, e.g.,
You may find it useful to read the user guide as it provides some information about variable naming conventions. User guides are provided here:

Hope this helps,
