Notes
GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
The household weight can correct just for sample bias, or also for non-sampling errors (such as response bias and adjustment to population distribution). In many cases, the weight is a population weight, which means that the weight will inflate the result to reflect the total population.
We strongly recommend that all statistical analysis be performed using the data weights
