19 After school care issue Wave 7 B cohort
19.1 Variable name pc02e and pc02eo
The variable name pc02e and pc02eo refers to 'main reason child does not have any regular child care arrangements before and or after school'.
From Wave 4 through to Wave 7, the data regarding why the study child does not have regular child care arrangements was asked as follows:
- Wave 4: question was asked about current wave.
- Wave 5: asked as a catch-up 'two years ago' (i.e. asking about Wave 4 period). Data was combined for data release (W4 + W5) and used previous wave age indicator and pre-wave age in SC age column.
- Wave 6: asked as a catch-up question again 'two years ago' (i.e. asking about Wave 5 period) but there are no Wave 5 'current' data to be combined with (only catch-up data for a different period).
- Wave 7: asked as a catch-up question again 'two years ago' (i.e. asking about Wave 6 period) but there is no Wave 6 'current' data to be combined with (only catch-up data for a different period).
Based on the history of the questions, Waves 6 and 7 are not 'correct' catch-up questions as they don't relate to the Wave 4 time period and only ever asked participants who missed answering in previous waves. These items have become unusable in Wave 6 and Wave 7 due to the reducing population covered each time. As a result, the items have been dropped from the Wave 7 datasets and data dictionary.
