Which weights should I use to analyze the ATUS Eating and Health Module and the Well-being Module simultaneously?

#1

I would like to analyze data from the ATUS Eating and Health Module, along with data from the Well-being Module (in the same statistical models). Should I use wt06 (along with the corresponding replicate weights of rwt06_*)?

#2

Generally speaking each weight variable is designed for a specific set of variables. In the case of the Eating and Health module and the Well-being module, a bit more information is necessary before answering this question. This is because none of the Eating and Health module questions overlap with the Well-being module questions. In particular, the EHWT variable is available in ATUS samples from 2006-2008 and 2014-2016. The WBWT variable is available in ATUS samples from 2010 and 2012-2013. This raises the question, how are you planning on including data from both of these ATUS modules in one regression?
