I am using both the BHPS (wave 1-18) and the Understanding Society (wave 1-11) to conduct a descriptive analysis on episodes of caring over time. I would like to know what weights should I be using in this case of both a cross-section analysis and a longitudinal one. In case of a cross section analysis it seems to me that I can use xrwtuk1 for waves BH12 to BH18 and indinub_xw from wave 2 to 11. But what about all the other waves? Could you please let me know what is the best approach?
