W2_ind_all: Individual level file for all household members including children under 15 years. Includes household roster module and individual level questionnaire Modules.
Wave 2 N= 8110 household members including children under 15.
There are 5431 members aged 15 or over with individual questionnaire data.
This file contains one record per interviewed individual in the sample and does not include individuals who were not interviewed (including refusals, out of scope, untraced or deceased).
Note that at Wave 2 the individual questionnaire did not collect data on children under 15 years. The questionnaire was for all present household members aged 15 or over.
The Wave 2 individual file contains weights for cross-sectional analysis and longitudinal analysis. The weighting variable "wt_nr" deals with non-response at Wave 2 and is used for cross-sectional analysis. Then there is the weighting variable "wt_w2" which combines the design weight and the non-response weight to produce an overall weight. This is the weight used for Wave 1 to Wave 2 longitudinal analysis and is defined for those people who participated at both waves of the survey.
The Wave 2 individual file includes variable called "outcome". This takes the following values; 1 "interviewed" 2 "other non-response" 3 "absent from household" 4 "child under 15" 5 "moved away" 6 "deceased".
