Base for table
This table includes all LS members enumerated at the 2001 Census, EXCEPT:
Construction of variable: ethnic group in 2001
This table uses the variable ETHGRP0 in the table ME01 unaltered. Imputed values at ETHGRP0 are included in the table.
Construction of variable: whether dead by the end of 2007
The variable DEYRBDE (year of death) in the table DETH was used to identify LS members who died between 2001 and 2007 inclusive. Any LS members who were enumerated at the 2001 Census (as above) and had a death record with a non-missing year of death were assumed to have died by the end of 2007 (currently the last date for which deaths of LS members have been added to their records). Other sample members were assumed to be still alive at the end of 2007.
