Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The British Household Panel Survey: Programs for Generating Consistent Work-Life Histories: Waves 1-18, 1991-2009 includes programmes and a dataset to extract consistent work-life histories from 18 waves of the BHPS data. The methods used to reconcile the various sources of work-life histories in the BHPS are documented in an accompanying ISER working paper (see Documentation section below). The programmes allow users to apply their own rules for dealing with inconsistencies in survey responses. The derived work-life history files in this deposit should be seen as a complement to other BHPS Work-Life History files (1990-2005) available from the UK Data Archive under SN 3954. Users are also advised to download the main BHPS data available under SN 5151.
