Description

Dear Team,
I need to estimate persistent poverty rates following the standard definition that someone is persistently poor if she/he has been poor in the current year and in two of the last three years. The first question I have is regarding attrition: if the poor were more prone to attrition, are the longitudinal weights able to account for that? And my second question is about balanced panels: if I keep only those with income data in the last 4 waves, would I be affecting the representativeness of the sample?
Thanks a lot for your support,

Facundo
