I was hoping to use the Understanding Society Dataset for my dissertation on the motherhood wage gap. This requires variables including ID numbers, gender, income, skill level and number and date of childbirths to consider wage trajectories after the birth of a child.
I have downloaded data from both US and BHPS, however the data sets for the variables I require are split into multiple waves, as well as being in separate datasets for social and economic considerations. I was wondering if there is a way to access the data across all the waves and variables in one data set? Or to access only the variables I require?
