I am using the following variables over the years 2008-2012: AGE, SEX, MARST, RACENEW, EDUC, INCFAM97ON2, HIPUBCOV, HIPRIVATE, HINONE, SDENTALE, HIPDENTCOVR, DENTINT. I am trying to weight my cases in SPSS. I have read the User Notes and I am still confused. I know I need to use PERWEIGHT, but I also need to use The SUPPxWT series weight. Which SUPP series do I use? What would be my syntax for SPSS to create my weight variable?
Compute dentweight = perweight if year = 2008; dentweight = supp2wt if year 2008
Is this right?
