Description

Hello,

I want to study the relationship between subjective well-being and labour market situation.
I want to use fixed effects for this purpose.

I have set-up the data and I am working with the 5 waves. If I want to use the longitudinal weights proposed in the User Manual - I should use e_indscus_lw given that I am working with the adult self-response - then that means I will be working with a balanced panel right? I.e. people who participated in the 5 waves. As stated in the User Manual, I have assigned the weight in e_ to individuals in the first four waves.

What I wanted to know, given that xtset/xtreg do not work with svy, is whether this syntax is correct (although I am missing the complex design):

xtreg sclfsato i.status2 [pweight=my_lw], fe

Where my_lw is the e_ weight assigned to individuals who have cases in all waves (and 0 is assigned to individuals who have participated in less waves) - as stated in the User Manual.

Another question: If I wanted to include in the analysis individuals who have participated in less waves (at least 2), weighting gets more complicated right? I was just wondering if you thought of giving a course on advanced weighting in the UKHLS (just an idea!).

Many thanks in advance,

Carolina
