Weight: Columns 25091 (xxxx.xxxx) -- Varname: WEIGHT
The study dataset(s) contain weight factors that should be employed in any data analysis. Typically weights are used in an attempt to assure that the survey sample more accurately represents the population.
Usage Note: The weight variable is called "weight" and should be used in all analyses geared toward reporting marginal results. There is no weight variable that combines all 19 countries into a single sub-Saharan Africa sample. Thus, the existing weight variable should be used only for analyses of national populations and subgroups of national populations.
