BHPS Documentation and Questionnaires

Record Type IHHSAMP

Record Type IHHSAMP 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 the User Documentation for a detailed description of the fieldwork process).

Respondent households, for which records IHHRESP etc. will exist, may be identified from the variable IIVFHO. Note that the coding frame for this variable is substantially different from that used at Wave One and at Wave Two.

Derived and additional variables are those from IXHWGHT onwards.

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.
