BHPS Documentation - Record Type XWLSTEN

Record Type XWLSTEN contains information on the latest known sample status of individuals. It contains one record for each individual who has ever been a member of a respondent household. It is keyed on PID, the Cross-Wave Person Identifier, and contains information required to locate the most recent contact with each member of the sample, and, if applicable, reasons why there has been no contact since that wave.

It also indicates the wave of entry to sample, the reasons why sample membership may have changed, and whether the sample member has ever been interviewed.

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.
