Dear all,

I going to investigate factors associated with child height (zscore variable). My main concern is about weights. I read in other messages of the forum, that we have to weight the child data (krfile) using the v005 variable. However, the v005 variable comes from the mother data (irfile) where all the data is unique per caseid variable.

I would like to know if there any problem weighting the child data(krfile) since some values of the v005 variable are repeated per caseid.

Thank you so much for your response
