Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The British Household Panel Survey Pension Wealth Derived Variable Data, 1991-2001 contain estimates of respondents' pension wealth in each year from 1991 to 2001, which were derived from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) by making use of the additional questions about private pensions which were included in BHPS Wave 11. As a result, these measures of pension wealth are only available for individuals who responded to Wave 11 of the BHPS. The data comprise information on accrued and projected pension wealth. See documentation for further details.

The main BHPS study is held at the UK Data Archive under GN 33196.

For the second edition (May 2008), a new version of the data and documentation have been deposited due to an error in the pension wealth measures for 2000.
Main Topics:
The variables cover accrued and simulated future state, private and total (state + private) pension wealth.
