Description

I could do with some advice re: which weights to use for the COVID module Waves 2 & 6 (that have both web and telephone surveys). According to the documentation, I should be using the _xw_t weights. When I compare the two values, I notice that for wave 6, the _xw_t weight field is missing for a lot of my sample (16-19 year olds).

I have attached two screenshots as examples of what I mean.

Any advice would be most welcome. Thanks!
