BHPS Documentation - Record Type RINDRESP

This Record contains individual data from full and proxy questionnaires. Data from the Household Composition Form is also copied to this record. Proxy and telephone respondents may be distinguished from main questionnaire respondents on the basis of the variable RIVFIO.

Proxy and telephone data is copied to equivalent full questionnaire variables. Where there is no equivalent variable, values are set to -7 (inapplicable). The variables RPRRS2I RPRIPN RPRWHY RPRFEHQ RPRSEHQ RPRFITB RPRJBFT RTELWHY etc. correspond to questions which have no direct equivalent in the full questionnaire. They are inapplicable for full respondents.

Data from the job history are contained on record RJOBHIST, except for a number of derived variables. Similarly detailed data on payment receipts from questions F3a - F3f are contained on record RINCOME.

Derived and additional copied variables are those from RIVFIO to RREGION and from RHGR2R onwards. The variables RREGION RHHSIZE RHHTYPE RTENURE and RFIHHMN are copied from record PHHRESP. The variables RIVFIO RIODC and RHGR2R to RHOH are copied from record RINDALL.

The following variables have data for all missing cases imputed (note that proxy cases do not have imputed values except in the case of RPRFITB):

See the User Documentation for a full discussion of imputation. Imputation flag variables are listed below.

The results displayed in the following tables are obtained from unweighted data. A full discussion of the use of the weights contained on this Record Type appears in Volume A.
