I am looking for the cross sectional adult self-completion weight (var - e_indscub_xw on wave e), however it doesn’t seem to be on the wave 6 data set? Please could you advise

We took the decision to discontinue producing an adult self-completion cross-sectional weight, given that the self-completion questions are now part of the main interview rather than a separate instrument and consequently do not have a high level of non-response, relative to the main interview. We suggest you use e_indinui_xw. If the additional 5% or so of non-response to the sc questions is particularly important to your analysis, you could model that non-response and make an adjustment to the weight.
Hope that helps,
