Description

Hello all,

Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

I've recently carried out an analysis on adolescent mental health, across three waves.

Study design as follows: Information on 16-21 year olds at Wave 6 (n=1,748)from indresp.dta, and again, at Wave 9.

Covariates on previous mental health and bullying were included from waves 1, 3 and 5 (n=1,073, or 59% of original sample)of the youth survey.

The outcome measure was GHQ-12 scores at wave 6 and 9.Have included the pdf of the paper as is for further information.

My question is, what weight to use? Do USoc weights account for attrition by mental health (GHQ-12)?

Happy to give further detail if needed!

All the best,
Joe
