Description

Dear Alita,

if I understand the variable description correctly, englang is unfortunately not part of xwavedat. Whether English is first language is asked both immigrants and natives in wave one, and the IEMB in wave 6.
For wave 5, the englang variable appears as well. I want to use all six waves in USoc, for the years 2009-2015. For that purpose, I need to impute the information I have on englang to the missing waves/years.
So far, I have used the information from all three waves and generated a new variable englang_dv which I then merged m:1 pidp with the rest of the data set.
In broad terms, am I doing this correctly?
Thanks a lot!
Best wishes.

Nico
