Index TermsSocio-demographic Characteristics
NoteTwo age variables are computed. The age at date of interview is used for most purposes internal to a wave, e.g. computation of h/hold characteristics. The age at 1.12.95 is intended to ensure consistency in cross wave comparison. 1st December is also the criterion date for determining whether those close to 16 should be interviewed. Includes imputed data, for individual level derived variables, the imputation flag variable EAGEI takes the value 1 if the variable was imputed, and 0 or -8 otherwise. See Vol. A.

NoteThis distinguishes the separate benefit unit to which an individual belongs. Benefit units (see also EBUTYPE) are subsets of h/holds, consisting of single individuals or couples, and their dependent children, if any. The value of EBUNO is the person number of the first member of that benefit unit in sequential order of person numbers. EBUNO is missing if there is missing data on input variables, and the benefit unit cannot be inferred.
