Description

Hi all,

I'm using the BHPS dataset (w1-w18) to look at the impact of job changes. Using the job history files, I code a variable for job changes (combining spell change "jspno" with reasons for change "jhstpy"). I'm tabulating this new variable by time to look at changes between waves, but I can't include the cross sectional weights (xrwght/xrwtuk1) in this table. After looking around for a bit I noticed that those with values in "job history files" contain no values for "cross sectional weight" variables, and those with "cross sectional weight values" have no values for "job history files" in any given year. Am I doing something wrong?

Hello again,

Apologies for the confusing query above. I made a small (read: stupid) mistake, confusing "append" with "merge". The weights work fine. I'll show myself out!
