Description

Dear Officer,

Thank you for your previous support. Your help really means a lot to me.

I am currently looking at the non-respondent adjustment at individual level. The user guide says (p.75):

"The predictors used in the models include all the predictors used for the household level nonresponse models and individual and household-level variables obtained from the household questionnaire, such as age and gender, marital and employment status, household size and presence of children in the household, as well as household expenditure on food and food outside, consideration of use of environmental energy, among others."

However, I cannot find some of these variables, such as household expenditure on food and food outside, consideration of use of environmental energy, household size in the w_indall.dta file. Does UKHLS provide this non-respondent information for the users to measure the weights themselves, or user can only use the available variables in w_indall.dta?

Thank you very much.

Louise
