Thank you Bridgette and Mahmoud for the timely responses. I always appreciate.
So, given the alternatives and risks of majority dominance, I chose the "equal weight for each survey" alternative.
That is I generate individual sample weight var, wgt for each survey before appending.
gen wgt= v005/1000000 and then append. I hope I am not wrong.
Regards.
