Description

To whom it may concern,

I am using the BHPS sample, from its first wave (1991) through to the most recent wave of the UKHLS (selecting only BHPS members). I read about the BHPS and UKHLS weights in the documentation and training courses, but I still was not sure which weight I should use when restricting the analysis to only the BHPS using also its continuation. Furthermore, I could not find any other previous studies that have used the continuation of the BHPS sample into the UKHLS applying weights for the estimates. Therefore I was wondering whether there is a recommended procedure to ensure the analysis is representative of the UK or Great Britain, when following the BHPS sample into the UKHLS.

Thanks,
Lawrence

Lawrence,

For analysis of BHPS members who have participated since 1991 you should use the relevant weight with zz==91 (see section 3.8.2 of the waves 1-6 User Guide). e.g. f_indin91_lw or f_psnen91_lw.
