User Guides

This guide was prepared to accompany the initial deposit of the combined NCDS/BCS70 1999/2000 dataset at the UK Data Archive in June 2001.

It gives a comprehensive overview of the survey process and the data itself.  It also draws attention to certain areas where further cleaning was felt to be necessary.

The data were re-deposited in December 2002, following cleaning exercises on the BCS70 individual case identifiers, pregnancy histories and household grid variables.   This work is outlined in the respective data notes.
