weights for pooled cross-sections over waves (a)-(g)
I have a quick follow-up question with regard to my past issue #839. You wrote the following below:
A simpler approach would be to select based on current wave GOR. This will not remove the sample imbalance problem, but should reduce it to a minimum, so may be good enough.
For me to implement this simpler approach and to minimize the sample imbalance, you suggest to drop Scot, Wales, NI for the current wave g only? Or do you mean to drop all Scot, Wales, NI for all seven waves?
I would appreciate a short reply and sorry about the very delayed follow-up question.

By "current wave" I meant wave 1 in the case of the wave 1 sample, wave 2 for the wave 2 sample, etc. So, for each of the 6 waves you are pooling, select based on GOR for that wave. That way your analysis will represent - for each year - people living in England at that time.

I appreciate your prompt reply very much. It is very clear to me know.
Apologies for the confusion on my part.
Have a great day.
