Dear Experts, greetings.
I appended KR data files from different countries for further analysis.
I created a sample weight, wgt (gen wgt=v005/1000000)for each country's data file before the append.
I then appended the files and started the further analysis. Am I wrong, please?
Should I de-normalize the women's individual sample weights (v005) before the append? If so, how can I do it, please?
thank you in advance.
Regards
