Household weight (South Sulawesi)

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


HQWEIGHT_SS is an inverse probability weight that is representative at the region level for households, and should be used in analyses of all household questionnaire variables for estimates of Sulawesi-Selatan. HQWEIGHT_SS controls for household and female non-response, but because there are multiple people in one household, analyses should be restricted to one person per household, using LINENO. Most simply, analyses can be restricted to persons with LINENO equal to 1. This restriction yields one result per household and thus appropriately gives equal weight to households with one member and households with many members.
HQWEIGHT_SS represents the probability of selecting the household in the enumeration area (EAID). This weight variable is specific to households within the province of Sulawesi-Selatan in Indonesia.
For more details on how HQWEIGHT_SS was calculated, please see the Weighting Memo from the PMA team.
For all persons not living in the province of Sulawesi-Selatan, the value of HQWEIGHT_SS is zero. To identify persons living in Sulawesi-Selatan province, see GEOID.
