Description

Hi,

I am trying to use the BHPS sample to undertake longitudinal analysis on employment questions. To weight the data I have used the weight "br_indin01_lw". The weight seems to work and allows me to compare the data across waves. However, I would like to know how to get estimates reflecting the whole UK population?

Thank you.

Best,
Pierre

Pierre,

All our weights are designed to represent the population. By using the weights your results become representative :)

Hope this helps,
Olena
