Description

I currently carrying out an analysis where I am looking only at people coded 'OSM' at wave 1 who participated in waves 1, 6 and 7. I am not including those added in at wave 2 from BHPS or any other additions after this point. I am using data from x_hhresp and x_indresp as well as linking it to MSOA data. I am trying to decide which weight I need for this longitudinal analysis. Would I be correct in using 'n_indinus_lw' in this instance?

Thanks in advance

Natalie

Natalie,

Yes, the choice of the weight is correct and it should come from wave 7. By the way the weight will automatically select OSMs for you.

Thanks,
Olena
