Good afternoon,

After merging the files from household recode and children recode, some of the sampling weights for the household data disappear. I am doing analyses for which I need both sampling weights as sometimes the analyses are on the level of the individual child and other times these are on the level of the household. However, it seems that for a lot of cases the household sampling weight has disappeared after merging these files. It seems to be the case for households with more children where one child gets the household sampling weight in the merged file and the other children from the same household get a missing value.

Could you please help me understand what is happening here and how I can fix this problem?

Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards,
Rachel Kelders
