UKHLS Weighting Strategy: What does it mean for you?ISER Internal Seminars

The UKHLS while similar to the BHPS is different from it in a
number of key areas, especially sample design and fieldwork process.
These have serious implications for the weighting strategy and how users
use the data. While you may or may not use the weights, how you use the
data will inform what type of weights we might provide. For example,
given the overlapping fieldwork period would you want to combine data
from two waves collected in the same year? Would you combine the BHPS
with the rest of the UKHLS sample? We aim to highlight these issues,
suggest a number of possible solutions and get feedback from you.
