Description

I am working on the BHPS dataset. My aim is to check whether the change in the Long Term Care policies in 2002 had an effect on precautionary savings at an individual level.
To do so, I need to use the BHPS as a panel: I saw that there are longitudinal weights that are to be used in order to make longitudinal studies on the data. In addition to that, do you think I should use also cluster and strata variables when declaring the dataset? I understood the dataset is has a clustered design but as far as I saw, such cluster (PSU) and strata variables are contained in the HHsamp but not in the Indresp. So I thought that maybe, if the analysis is done at an individual level the longitudinal weights are already taking everything into account.

kind regards,
Elisa Macchi
