Description

Hi,

I've doing some basic cross-sectional analysis of Wave 2 individual-level data. I understand that the appropriate weighting variable has zero values.

What's the easiest way of finding the unweighted sample size to report - is it to look at the number of the cases with non-zero values of the weighting value in my sub-group of interest? For example, the unweighted sample size for Adults in Scotland who have done Health, fitness, gym or conditioning activities in the last year (b_sports11) will be....

weight off.
select if (b_country = 3) and (b_indpxus_wx > 0).
fre b_sports11.

Regards,
Chris

That seems fine. If you look at the sample origin (w_hhorig), you will find that most with zero weights were from BHPS.
