Weights - Longitudinal BHPS
Dear support team,
I was intending on using the BHPS sub-sample in wave 2 as the final wave of a longitudinal study along with data from wave 15-18 of the BHPS. Are weights available that will allow me to use the BHPS sub-sample in wave 2 in this way (I was looking for something along the lines of ‘b_indscbh_lw’ following the documentation, but I cannot find it), given that weights for the final wave of the study are required?

Unfortunately, the weight that you need for your analysis is not available at the moment. The best weight to use in your situation will be rlrwtuk1 from wave 18 of BHPS. This weight will correct for differences in selection probabilities, for wave 1 nonresponse, and for attrition up to wave 18. The only part missing will be correction for the nonresponse between waves 18 and 19.
Hope this helps.
