Weights and BHPS-Understanding Society data
I am trying to analyse UK data from the Understanding Society dataset and I would like to make comparisons between social attitudes in different regions of the UK. For example, Wales vs Scotland or South East vs South West.
What would be the correct weights to use in each of these levels of analysis?
Also, is it correct that the Government Office Regions is the highest spatial resolution at which we can map the survey data?
Finally, I would like to look at how attitudes towards some topics evolved over time and ideally combined the Understanding Society data with the BHPS. Were some of the questions, variables or topics maintained across the two datasets? Or, if they changed slightly, is there any information on how to find the corresponding questions or the questions from a specific topic in both datasets?
