Weights for w2 bloods
Please will you advise on the following: When using the bloods data in W2 (GPS sample) and W2 mainstage questionnaire (GPS sample) eg for an analysis of permanent vs temporary work (b_jbterm1) and CRP (b_hscrp), is it appropriate to use the nurse weight b_indnsus_xw or is there a specific one for blood data only that should be used? Many thanks in advance for your help, Gill

Yes, there is a weight called c_indbdub_xw. This is for the use of both, UKHLS GPS sample and BHPS sample. It was supposed to go on to the file xindresp_ns.dta or on c_indresp.dta. Yet, I personally can't be sure the weight is there. If you can't find the weight, could you contact us again, please?
