BHPS Documentation and Questionnaires

Record Type BHHSAMP

Record Type BHHSAMP contains fieldwork control, interview outcome and weighting information. There is one record for each issued household, and records for additional households which split off from an issued household. See Volume A for a detailed description of the fieldwork process.

Respondent households, for which records BHHRESP and so on will exist, may be identified from the variable BIVFHO. Note that the coding frame for this variable is substantially different from that used at Wave One.

Derived and additional variables are those from BXHWGHT onwards.

This record also contains variables which allow households which were part of the inter-penetrating sample experiment to be identified. Volume A contains a description of the Inter-penetrating Sample Exercise.

The results contained in the following tables are obtained from unweighted data. See Volume A for a full discussion on weighting.
