Description

Hi,

I found the percentage of young people (aged 20-34 years old in each wave) living with their parents in UKHLS is inconsistent with the percentage in Labour Force Survey.

I used n_npns_dv to derive whether young graduates are living with their parents. I used cross-sectional weight n_indpxub_xw (I also tried longitudinal weight) to adjust the sample. My case study is in England.

I found that the percentage of young people living with their parents rose from 25% in wave 1 to 46% in wave 8. However, in the LFS, this figure was also 25% in 2009 but only 28% in 2018. Not sure if I can do anything to close this 18% gap.

Many thanks.

Louise
