Description

Many thanks for previous advice on how to construct longitudinal weights for linking youth self-completion datasets. We are also trying to follow the older part of the Wave 2 youth cohort into the adult survey at Wave 5. Please could you offer some advice about how best to construct the weighting here?

Jane,

All 16/17 year-olds, when they first complete the main (adult) interview receive the adult longitudinal weight at that wave and for so long as they continue responding. So you can just use n_indpxub_lw or n_indinub_lw, as appropriate, and merge on their earlier youth self-comp data using pidp.

Or if you are only using wave 5 main interview data (i.e. not also wave 4 for those who turned 16 at wave 4, etc), you can use the cross -sectional weights, e_indpxub_xw or e_indinub_xw.

Peter
