Description

Hi,
I am running analysis (logit) on a subsample of UKHLS - wave 6 only, people under the age of 30.

I am using the following weights:
svyset f_psu [pweight=f_indinui_xw], strata (f_strata) singleunit(centered)

I wanted to check that this was the correct approach? I am unsure whether the weights should be used in the same way for a subsample of UKHLS as if you were analysing the full sample.

Thanks
AM

Dear Amanda,

Yes, your syntax looks correct. And yes if you use any subpopulation you should use weights as for the full sample.

Thanks,
Olena
