Description

Hello,
I want to use both waves 1-2 of US. In such case I think I need to keep only those individuals that responded in both waves.
I have to estimate the mean of life satisfaction for different groups of immigrants over the two years.
Therefore I need to use the longitudinal self-completion weight, b_indscus_lw.
I don't understand one thing:
The weight regards only observations of wave 2, therefore I need to keep only these observations? doing so I end up with a miserable number of individuals, and I cannot estimate the life satisfaction mean for the groups because the observations have zero weight. I attached my do file. I look forward to your kind reply, thanks
