Description

I am working with data from the adult 16+ individual questionnaire, namely the *_indresp data files. I am interested in the subjective health measure and mental health score questions that are consistent across several waves of both the UKHLS and BHPS.

I am interested in developing estimates using a weighted longitudinal sample of any individual who answered one of these health questions during any wave of the BHPS or UKHLS. Thus, the sample would include individuals who only appeared in the BHPS, only appeared in the UKHLS, and appeared in both the BHPS and UKHLS.

I see that longitudinal survey weights are provided by each survey separately, such as the set of longitudinal survey weights for enumerated individuals from the BHPS (_lewght) and another set of longitudinal survey weights for individuals from the UKHLS (_indinub_lw). Is there a set of provided weights that is designed for dealing with the UKHLS and BHPS jointly?

Alternatively, I am interested in constructing some derivative of the provided longitudinal weights for my joint sample. How might I go about designing this set of weights?

Thanks,

Helen
