Description

Hello,

I was interested in undertaking a longitudinal analysis of the youth self-completion data. I've noticed a high level of attrition between waves 1 and 2. Of those who complete wave 1, only around 57% also complete the survey at wave 2. I tried to make sense of this attrition by looking at the technical manual but there were fewer details in regards to the youth self-completion data - do you know if this attrition largly down to refusal or are there other reasons for it?

I also wanted to ask about weights. Is there any plan to provide longitudinal weights for the youth self-completion data?

Thank you for your help.

Peter,
Are you looking at the latest release of the full Wave 2?

Yes, the full wave 2 data that was released recently. I've realised that some of the apparent attrition will be down to young people becoming eligible for the adult measures (e.g., reaching 16 years.

You are correct that there will be a right censoring due to age. I assume this issues has now been resolved.
