Description

hi user support,

1. i am doing a cross-sectional analysis using the wave 2 adult self completion (SC) interview. what weight do i use? theoretically there should be a b_indscub_xw but only b_indscus_xw is available. if i use the latter to weight my means, then i lose 16,000 observations, which i'm assuming are the bhps people?

2. if i combine questions from the wave 2 adult SC interview with the biomarker data, then i should be using indbdub_xw? what sample am i representing when i use this weight?

thanks for all the help!
