Description

Hello,

I am attempting to measure 3-monthly internal migration moves between UK regions during the Covid pandemic, using your Covid survey data.

To do this, I have created a variable to identify where movements have taken place between waves, e.g., for moves between May - July 2020:
gen regi_moves = 1 if cd_gor_dv != cb_gor_dv

However, when I longitudinally weight these regional moves using betaindin_lw, the unweighted counts of moves are significantly reduced. E.g., the unweighted count of 147 moves into the South East between May - July 2020, is reduced to a weighted count of 3.324 moves.

Is there a way of producing valid weights for the analysis of moves between Waves please, which do not have such reduced counts? I was hoping to compare sequential Waves, excluding Waves 1 and 3. So comparing Waves 2 - 4, 4 - 5, 5 - 6 etc. The reduction in counts prevents me from generalizing rates of internal migration moves with any accuracy.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
