Hello,

I am working on a project with some colleagues and we are doing an analysis that uses all individuals listed in the household rosters and who were in the eligible age range to be interviewed in the individual interviews. Because not everyone eligible to be interviewed actually IS interviewed (non-response of ~3-5% across different surveys), we don't have individual weights for these "missing" individuals. Additionally, since individual weights are affected, in part, by the response rates of those in their surrounding areas, we can't just use the individual weights from the individual surveys either, even for those who were reached.

Is there a way to construct or assign an appropriate weight for all individuals included in the household rosters (in the appropriate age range)?

Thank you in advance!
Sylvan
