Female weight (Kano)

This variable is a 17-digit variable with decimal points.  All cases that are missing or NIU (not in universe) are coded as zero.


FQWEIGHT_KANO is an inverse probability weight for respondents of the female questionnaire living in the state of Kano in Nigeria. FQWEIGHT_KANO should be used in analyses of all questions on the female questionnaire to get estimates for Kano.

FQWEIGHT_KANO controls for female non-response, but because all eligible females in the household responded to the questionnaire, respondent selection probability does not need to be controlled for. For more details on how FQWEIGHT_KANO was calculated, please see the Nigeria Weighting Memo from the PMA2020 team.

For person records who were not women aged 15 to 49 and all persons not living in the state of Kano, the value of FQWEIGHT_KANO is zero. To identify female respondents living in Kano, see GEONG.


There are no comparability issues.
