De facto marital status and urban or rural area, derived
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,

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., https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/wave/3/datafile/c_indall/variable/c_urban_dv
You may find it useful to read the user guide as it provides some information about variable naming conventions. User guides are provided here:
