    Notes:

    For T&T Self-isolating (previously T&T Contacts) this question has a pre-filled answer from sampling. This means the question is answered using existing sampling data.

    For IPS, the response options are given in age brackets, as follows: "0-15", "16-24", "25-34", "35-44", "45-54", "55-64", "65 or over". For "0-15" and "16-24", there is the option for interviewers to select that the travelling group are all within these age brackets.

    For IPS, if the respondent is a migrant, the respondent enters their age from 0 to 97.

    For T&T Cases, Contacts and IAIS, the "Prefer not to say" response option is coded if the respondent refuses to answer and the "Don't know" response option is coded if the respondent is unsure.

    Variable is unlabelled for CIS.

    For HAS and SLC, variable is "EthE" (for England), "EthW" (for Wales) or "EthS" (for Scotland).

    "Prefer not to say" is a response option for IAIS and T&T Behaviours only.

    The response options for this question have been adapted for the Question Bank. The set of responses would usually have subheadings. For each response option, the subheading is written first before the dash ("-") and the response option follows after the dash ("-"). For example, "White" would be the subheading and "Irish" would be the response option.

    For HAS, a follow-up question is presented to describe their ethnic group if any of the following response options are selected: "Any other white background", "Any other Mixed/multiple background", "Any other Asian background", "Any other Black, African or Caribbean background", or "Any other ethnic group".

    For IAIS, SLC and T&T Behaviours, the response options do not include sub-headings (e.g., "White", "Mixed/multiple ethnic groups", "Asian or Asian British"). Only the numbered response options are present.

    For T&T Behaviours, the response options are worded slightly differently as the subheadings are included at the start of the response option (e.g., "Pakistani" is presented as Asian or Asian British - Pakistani).
