Description

Hi,

I have a really basic question about weights though I want to make sure that I'm doing my analysis correctly. Most of my analysis involve the sample of respondents from the last wave (h_). However, sometimes I take into account the responses that those individuals interviewed in wave h_ gave in previous waves. At the moment I am using the cross-sectional weight from the last wave h_, but I'm not sure if this is correct. Should I use a longitudinal weight if I use their responses in previous waves? (even if I only consider those individuals inteviewed in the last wave)
Regarding the issue of weighting, I think I underestimated the complexity of it in the UKHLS. Do you have any slides from a past course about this topic that could be shared online?

Thanks
