Description

When I try to do a regression I come up with the error in screenshot below. My weight values have to be different because of the way Understanding Society has set the weight up. How do I go around this problem? Thank you so much!

Dear Parth,

Sounds like your set up of the dataset / weight variable is wrong. Can you tell us how you created your dataset, and how you selected your weight?

Best,

I merged the j and k individual response datasets. I used the j and k indinui_lw weight variable because I am going to be doing pooled regressions. I think the problem is that wave 1 has j value and wave 2 has k value. Should I make the weight for each respondent the k value?

Me again, sorry! I also have a new problem with psu. I have decided to change my dataset and merge indresp of waves a, f, and k. However I get this error. I have checked Data Editor and the psu is the same across every individual so I am not sure what the issue is.

Parth,

Is your dataset in long or short format? What are your units of analysis?

Thanks,
Olena
