Description

Hello,

I am trying to select an appropriate weight but I am struggling with deciding which is the most appropriate. I am using the youth survey, and my analysis is at wave 1,3, and 5.

Based on the criteria, I was expecting

1. _lw because it is longitudinal, using waves 1,3,5

2. e_ which is the last Wave I use in the Understanding Society survey

3. It is at the individual level so _ythsc

zz_ part should be us_

e_ythsc_us_lw

I was expecting this but it does not appear to be there. Could you help me pick a weight? I have tried using the documentation and looking through files but I can’t seem to find an appropriate one. The youth are the main respondents but I have also linked fixed variables from household information such as deprivation variables and the youth’s parental mental health.

Kind regards
