Description

Hello,

I will use youth data from waves 1 to 8 (not always from all 8 waves, depending on the analysis). I will also link data on household, mother, and neighbourhood. While I am planning to use data from multiple waves, my analysis will not necessarily be longitudinal. I am expecting a dramatic drop in N because I will only use data on children from Greater London. Therefore, I want to use all data available. While I will not run a growth model or similar, I will adjust for clustering in children (using a multilevel model). Some children will have 1 data point, some 2, some 3. Data on some children will come from the first waves, data on other children will come from the last waves. I wonder how to apply weights in this analysis. For example, if I use a cross-sectional youth weight from wave 8, this will not be available for respondents who were'youth' in earlier waves.

Thanks very much for any ideas/suggestions!

Best wishes,
Marie
