HHWEIGHT (HV005) is an 8-digit numeric variable, which should be used as a weighting factor to produce representative numbers accurately describing the surveyed population, when household members are the unit of analysis.
Note: For researchers using a flat data file (.dat), HHWEIGHT contains 6 implied decimal places, and researchers should divide this variable by 1,000,000 before applying it as a weighting factor. For all other data formats, HHWEIGHT has already been adjusted, and researchers do not need to make any changes before using this variable.
