Data Transparency

Why Data Transparency?

To construct many CNEF data, we combine data from the parent surveys. Our codebooks describe the algorithms we use. Here we present Excel sheets that include hyperlinks for each original survey variable we use. The sheets present links to the original data variables for each CNEF variable, by year and country. Note that this is a work in progress. We will post the files as we complete them.

Australia | HILDA - CNEF Data File

HILDA Data Transparency Sheet

HILDA keeps track of data using an online system that stores each specific variable and its corresponding summary by wave. In the sheet below, for each variable, each wave contains direct links to the specific variables used in the construction of the CNEF variable code.

UK | BHPS-CNEF and UKHLS-CNEF Data Files

BHPS Data Transparency Sheet

The BHPS keeps track of data using an online system that stores each specific variable and its corresponding summary by wave and by record type. In the sheet below, for each variable, each wave contains direct links to the variable details as well as a link to the overarching record type that it is stored under. Note, in some years variables were stored under multiple record types, which we have included here for the fullest transparency.

US| PSID-CNEF Data File

PSID Data Transparency Sheet

The links below connect users to the PSID Data Center documentation that tabulates a frequency distribution for each original variable. Until 1993 PSID variable names begin with a “V.” Since 1994, the PSID names variables with an “ER” prefix (Early Release) prefix. The variable names are unique.
