divider

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:
V043262q.zip

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 /

NOTES:
------
Collapsed from Y6x4; coding approximates as closely as possible
equal size groupings of respondents by ranked scores, i.e.,
code 1 corresponds (approximately) to the bottom 16.67% of scored 
cases and code 6 corresponds (approximately) to the top 16.67% 
of scored cases.
