24 Reason for change in education institution - SC CAI 6.5 (pc44c3b1):

In Wave 7 in the CAI instrument for the K cohort, participants were asked:

‘What is the main reason for the most recent change of education institution?’ This question was limited to the following population:

  • Study child was away from home (RAP);
  • Study child was studying; and
  • Study child had changed schools.

Only a very small number of the Wave 7 K sample would have been sequenced to the question but analysis after enumeration showed that no responding participants had answered this question. As a result, this item has been dropped from the data dictionary and data files for Wave 7.
