Weighting in European Social Survey Dataset

Postby Vesikulho » Tue Aug 25, 2015 10:00 am

A guideline for European Social Survey says that we should use weights in analysing the data.
also it is said that two different types of weights can be easily combined... but it is not said how it happens...
(In the dataset there are a populatíon size weitght and it should be combined with a design weigth)

If I would like to combine two different weights, how it can be done with SPSS?

The "typical" way is to multiply the 2 to get the combined in a new variable
