Description

Hello Alita,

I tried following item 11 for doing January 2014 as an example. When I filtered interviews from wave 5, sample month 1 (if wave==22 & month==1) using the data editor on Stata, istrtdaty indicated 2013, istrtdatm ranged from 1 to 6. I am confused why interviews that started in 2013 have to be added under “January 2014” monthly average. Am I doing the filtering in a completely wrong way? It would be helpful if an illustration of January 2014 can be provided, along with the appropriate weighting variable for this month. In order for me to generate 3-month rolling averages/variances, I would need to “create” a period variable that would uniquely identify each pidp within a wave period but in terms of calendar months or years. The command I am trying to do is rangestat on Stata:

rangestat (mean) monthmean_lfsat_3ma = monthmean_lfsat, by(panel_id) interval(panel_month -2 0) —> 3-month moving average of life satisfaction

Hi Abigail,

I have assigned this to Olena. This is similar to your question on the other post which also I have assigned to Olena, so she can respond to both together.

Best wishes,

Hi Abigail,

Hello Alita,

I keep going back and reading Olena’s advice and the weighting FAQ to make sure that the results I get are not biased.

You mentioned that it is possible to have a more detailed chat about any technical concerns regarding Understanding Society. Is this still permitted?

Kindly let me know. Many thanks to Olena and you for your support.
