This is a follow up to a previous question I asked about using activity-level weights with the ATUS wellbeing module (here). Thank you for your answer then. I am still confused about on a couple of points.
(1) In your response you advised multiplying the awbwt value by the amount of time in the activity of interest (in my case childcare). But in the codebook it seems to say that the activity-level weight should be multiplied by the amount of time spent in ALL activities eligbile for the well-being module. I would appreciate any clarification you could offer on this.
(2) From what I can tell, the formulas for estimating affect during a particular activity that are laid out in the handbook are aimed at producing estimates of average affect during a particular activity (e.g. in the handbook average pain while at work). But they don’t seem to be designed for use in multi-variate analysis, (e.g. what characteristics predict experiencing more or less pain while at work). Is this interpretation correct? What weights should I be using in a multi-variate analysis to predict affect during a particlar activity? Perhaps this is when I need to multiply by the amount of time in the activity of interest?
Thank you for your help. It is very much appreciated.
