NoteAt Wave Four the high number of 'Other' responses to this set of questions led to the category 'Paid help only' being coded separately and given the value 4, 'Other' recoded to 5. This extra category was formalised into the questions at Wave 6. In Wave Two, there is only one summary question on domestic division of labour, BHUDOES, where the response categories differ.
