BHPS Documentation - Record Type RINDSAMP

This record contains individual level variables derived from the Household Cover sheet. The record is keyed on RHID and RPNO. There will be one RINDSAMP record for each issued individual at each household where they were expected to be found, either at first issue, or as a result of a move uncovered during the fieldwork process, and additionally a record for each new entrant identified at a contacted household. Thus any individual may be represented by more than one RINDSAMP record, if they were understood to have moved. The variable RFINLOC enables the last household where the sample member was expected to be found to be identified.
