|Description:||Collapsed version of occupational prestige variable (V043262q)|
Users have requested that we add a collapsed version of the occupational prestige variable (V043262d) to the public dataset. Since a collapsed version of the variable is not a concern in terms of respondent confidentiality, we plan to add such a variable to the next version of the public release file.
In the meantime, we are providing a file containing the new variable (V043262q), along with variable V040001 for purposes of merging with the main file. The file is a ZIP file; within the ZIP file is an Excel file containing the data. The ZIP file can be downloaded by clicking on the following link:
The codes have been collapsed into six groups of approximately equal size, as shown in this frequency:
Code 1 N=183 Code 2 N=179 Code 3 N=186 Code 4 N=190 Code 5 N=182 Code 6 N=177
The codebook entry for the variable will be:
======================================================================== V043262q Y6x14. STACKED: Collapsed past/current occup prestige score ======================================================================== IF RETIRED OR ELSE UNEMPL/NONWORKING DISABLED WHO HAS EVER WORKED FOR PAY / IF R IS NOT RETIRED AND IS WORKING NOW/TLO : QUESTION: --------- What kind of work did you do on your last regular job?
