I apologize if this question has been answered elsewhere. I did a quick search and found no relevant information.
I will greatly appreciate it If someone can help with the issue of representativeness of the family respondents sample in the NHIS. To deal with the issue of proxy responses in the NHIS, I am limiting my analysis to just family respondents (famrespflag = 2). I wonder how close to the national sample my weighted sample would be. Since family respondents are chosen from most households, I understand that the sample would still be representative of U.S. households. However, at the individual level, I am not sure how representative the family respondents sample would be. Thank you for your help.
