Description

I am performing a regression analysis, assessing which characteristics in one wave influence outcomes in the next

Is the appropriate choice of weighting for this cross-sectional or longitudinal? The majority of variables fall from within a single wave but the outcome in the next wave would suggest use of a longitudinal weight?

Thanks very much,

Olly

Olly,

Yes, if your regression uses variables from two consecutive waves (even if it is only the dependent variable that comes from the second wave), you should use the relevant longitudinal weight.
