- Is the BHPS comparable to other longitudinal data sets?
- What opportunities are there for cross-national research with the BHPS?
There are many opportunities for doing comparative research using the BHPS. Many of the questions in the BHPS are the same or similar to those on other studies.
From 1997 to 2001 the BHPS provided data for the United Kingdom European Community Household Panel (ECHP). For this reason, the BHPS is highly comparable to other panel studies across Europe. Moreover, the BHPS continues to contribute to Cross National Equivalence Files, more information about which can be found at the Ohio State University web-site
