Description

I am using data from the wave 2 mainstage interview and self-completion questionnaire together with the nurse assessment data for the US sample (not also the BHPS sample). There doesn’t seem to be a specific weight for using the self-completion questionnaire respondents rather than everybody who has data from the mainstage interview. Could I clarify if ‘b_indnsus_xw’ is the correct weight to use in this instance?

Many thanks

Dear Rachel,

A reply from the Weighting team:
Yes, the weight you suggest is the best suboptimal wieght so you should use that.
