Description

Hi

I am currently identifying respondents to the youth questionnaire who are adopted (see issue #816) - I have noted several inconsistencies with adoption status particularly in wave 2. Specifically some children identified as adopted (i.e. have 0 values in hgbiom & hgbiof and positive values in hgadoptm &/ or hgadoptf and also cross checked with number of natural children/ adopted children in parents' indresp files and some in a_adopt) in wave 2 are identified as natural children in other waves (sometimes multiple waves).

I wonder if there are known issues with the data in wave 2 and if you have any suggestions as to how to identify adopted children with the highest level of confidence.

Kind regards

Andrew
