Country of Birth
COBPUK

This question records each person's country of birth. A different order is used for the tick box responses for England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Where there is no applicable tick-box, the respondent is asked to write-in the present name of their country of birth. The variable is coded using the ONS Geography Classification of Countries (OGCC) (a coding system used in some other ONS outputs).
