<p><p><p>Earlier deposits of the Wave 1 ELSA data included all information about private pensions in the main individual-level dataset. While these variables continue to be available in that dataset, they are now also available in a pension-level dataset, which is designed to be easier to use and enables pensions from Wave 1 to be linked more easily to responses about the same pensions at Waves 2 and beyond. This user guide describes how the pensions have been categorised and which variables are included in this separate pensions grid, including some additional derived variables not previously available.</p></p></p>
