Description

To whom it may concern,

I am using the BHPS sample, from its first wave (1991) through to the most recent wave of the UKHLS (selecting only BHPS members). I read about the BHPS and UKHLS weights in the documentation and training courses, but I still was not sure which weight I should use when restricting the analysis to only the BHPS using also its continuation. Furthermore, I could not find any other previous studies that have used the continuation of the BHPS sample into the UKHLS applying weights for the estimates. Therefore I was wondering whether there is a recommended procedure to ensure the analysis is representative of the UK or Great Britain, when following the BHPS sample into the UKHLS.

Thanks,
Lawrence
