I am using BHPS data (wave 13-18) and have some queries.
First, for the purpose of my study, I will only include people from Scotland.
Could I ask what is the variable that I should use to allow me to do this.
Second, I am wondering what are the weighting variables for Scotland population only (not Scotland+Welsh)?
Are there separate weighting variables for longitudinal data or pooled cross-sectional?
Third, I notice that there are a lot of missing values for sex (I look at a variable called sex),
Is there any other variables in BHPS that can tell us the respondent's sex but with fewer missing values?
Fourth, I also want to know individual's age. I found a variable called (doby),
Again, is there any other variables that I should use for individual's age?
Fifth, I want to look at individual's educational background.
What variable should I use which tells me the highest education respondents have.
Last, I want to include respondent's income/socio-economics status.
I saw there are many possible variables that I can use,
but I am wondering what are the most commonly used variables for individual's income/socio-economic statues?
