Dear Jane,

Many thanks for your enquiry, I'm passing this on to our weighting team who will respond shortly.

Best wishes, Victoria.

Jane,

There are no longitudinal weights for the youth self-completion, primarily because this instrument on its own can only be used for rather short-term longitudinal analysis of narrow age bands (no young person is eligible for more than 6 consecutive waves) and because the types of longitudinal analysis in which users are interested are likely to be varied and age-specific. For example, a wave 1-5 longitudinal weight would only apply to children aged 10 or 11 at wave 1, so it is only possible to do 5-year longitudinal analysis of a 2-year age group, or 4-year analysis of a 3-year age group, etc.
