Description

I would like to conduct a panel analysis of teenagers responses in the youth self-completion survey based on waves 1-6 (using all answers), and I am struggling to understand the sampling weights supplied. In my understanding, I should use ythscus_xw as weights for the first two waves, and ythscub_xw as weights for the following waves. Is this correct?

If this is correct, were these weights constructed the same way? It seems that the weights in the first 2 waves are systematically lower than in the latter waves, hence my uncertainty.

Thanks for any support!
