Household weight (West Pokot)

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_ WESTPOKOT is an inverse probability weight that is representative at the county level for households, and should be used in analyses of all household questionnaire variables for estimates of the West Pokot County in Kenya. HQWEIGHT_ WESTPOKOT 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_ WESTPOKOT represents the probability of selecting the household in the sampling area (EAID). This weight variable is specific to households within the county of West Pokot in Kenya.

For more details on how this variable was calculated, please see the Weighting Memo from the PMA team.

For all persons not living in the county of West Pokot, the value of this variable is zero. To identify persons and households in West Pokot, see GEOKE.
