HHMWEIGHT (HV028) is an 8-digit numeric variable, which should be used as a weighting factor for the subset of households that were randomly selected for the men's or husband's survey. HHMWEIGHT should be used to weight all estimates produced using the households selected for the men's or husband's survey. For households not included in the men's or husband's survey, HHMWEIGHT is set to zero.
Note: For researchers using a flat data file (.dat), HHMWEIGHT 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, HHMWEIGHT has already been adjusted, and researchers do not need to make any changes before using this variable.
