 Appendix A-Notes on Weighting

           Notes on Weighting: 1990 AIDS Public Use Tape Documentation

 The final case weight in tape locs. 201-206 produces national estimates based
 on the full 52 weeks of data included in the 1990 AIDS Knowledge and
 Attitudes tape.  The estimator embodied in the final case weight includes a
 ratio-adjustment to benchmark population estimates by age, sex, and race.
 This adjustment also attempts to reduce bias resulting from nonresponse and
 household noncoverage.  The final case weight must be adjusted if the tape
 user intends to develop estimates for shorter time periods, e.g., to
 analyze data for specific calendar months.  The data contained on this tape
 will not provide reliable estimates for time periods of less than 4 weeks.

 To develop estimates for subsets of the 1990 AIDS data tape, e.g., for
 specific calendar months, the tape user must first identify cases by date of
 interview. This can be done be selecting on two fields the processing quarter
 (tape loc. 5) and the processing week code (tape locs. 19-20), which is
 numbered from 01 to 13 within each quarter.  The table below shows how the
 quarter and processing week codes correspond to actual interview weeks.  For
 example, to calculate estimates of AIDS knowledge for November 1990, the user
 would select only those cases where processing quarter = 4 and where
 processing week code = 04-08.

 Final weights for subsets of the 1990 AIDS Knowledge and Attitudes tape, such
 as for a single month of data, may be calculated by multiplying the final
 case weight in tape locs: 190-195 by 52/n, where n is the number of weeks of
 data in the subset being examined.  The resulting adjusted final case weight
 will be approximate since it does not directly incorporate the age/racesex
 poststratification adjustment described earlier. These weights for an n-week
 period may not yield estimates consistent with the benchmark population
 estimates by age, sex, and race.

 Tape users who wish to develop more accurate estimates for subsets of the
 data, e.g., for specific months, can customize their own age/sex/race
 poststratification procedures if desired:

 1)Create a temporary adjusted final case weight by multiplying the interim
   case weight (tape locs. 172-177) by 52/n.

 2)Determine age/sex/race poststrata appropriate to the intended analysis,
   making sure that each poststratum(e.g., black men aged 18-29)contains at
   least 50 cases.

 3)Sum the temporary adjusted case weights (i.e., the interim weights times
   52/n) within each poststratum and divide the benchmark population in the
   poststratum, e.g., a Census count or estimate, by this sum.  The result of
   this division is the age/sex/race poststratification adjustment factor.

 4)Multiply the temporary adjusted case weight by the appropriate age/sex/race
   postratification factor to obtain final adjusted case weight.
