Description

Hello,
I would like to follow individuals (14-15 yrs) who completed the self-completion youth questionnaire into the adult questionnaire (16+). I am interested in the questions on parental involvement and how this affects their adult outcomes.
How should I weight this?
Let's say that I consider 14-15 yrs individuals in wave 1 and I follow them in wave 2 (and/or 3).
Many thanks,
Carolina

Carolina,

The best weight for your analysis is an enumeration longitudinal weight taken from the last wave of your analysis. This won't correct for the whole nonresponse but will correct for most of it.

Hope this helps,
Olena

Hi Olena,
Many thanks for this prompt reply.
Just to make sure I understood, if I use individuals who are 15 in w1 and follow them when they are 16 in w2, I should use "b_indinus_lw", right?
(and c_indinus_lw if I use individuals who participated in waves 1, 2 and 3, correct?)
Thanks again,
Carolina

Carolina,

For w1-w2 analysis you should use b_psnenus_lw weight, and for 1-3 waves, it should be c_psnenus_lw.

Best,
Olena
