Weights for youth dataset
I'm looking to conduct a longitudinal analysis using the youth data from waves 1-10 from Usoc. I'm looking to explore how social media usage at age 13 relates to mental health outcomes at age 15.
Following your advice here https://iserredex.essex.ac.uk/support/issues/1472 I thought the best weight to use would be the suboptimal weight - longitudinal enumeration weight from the last wave of the analysis(j_psnenus_lw). However, 5,855/13842 young people are missing the weight. So I think should perhaps create my own weight to increase the sample size and I was a little unsure how to do this and was wondering if you could help?
One approach I thought might work would be to include the psnenus_lw weight from the last wave each young person participated in but I’m not sure this is ok to do?
Thanks in advance for your help.
