Description

Dear Understanding Society Support Team,

We are using data from adult main interviews from Waves 3 and 6. We are estimating the effect of depression on political efficacy - political efficacy is only available in these waves and this is why we are using these data. We are analyzing both levels and changes by estimating both fixed-effects and random-effects models. However, we are unsure about which weight(s) to use. By reading the User Guide our hint is that the weight "n_indinus_lw" might be the one we need. Could you please confirm or suggest us otherwise?

Many thanks and best wishes,
Luca

Luca,

The weight you suggested would be correct, but the weight f_indinub_lw will give you higher sample size - so you should use it.

Best,
Olena
