BHPS Documentation and Questionnaires

Record Type CHHRESP

This Record contains data from the Household Questionnaire and household level information from the Household Composition Form for respondent households. There is one record for each household.

Households with response code 16 'telephone interview only' will have CHHRESP records, but with most variables taking the missing value code -7.

For the households with response code 15 - 'proxy taken at original address' the CHHRESP record will exist, but entirely consist of missing values. In addition a small number of households were missing household questionnaires - these may be identified from the variable CHHDC.

Derived and additional variables are those from CHHDC onwards. Of these, CXHWGHT CREGION and CLADISTC are direct copies of variables on record CHHSAMP.

The following variables have data for all missing cases imputed:
