Hi,

I’m working with MTUS data and I would like to generate population-level estimates (i.e. the sum of hours spent on housework for the total adult population). I’ve been reading about the propwt weight, which is provided in the data, and it says that it deflates the original weight (when the original weight inflated to the population size). Does the MTUS include the necessary information to reconstruct the inflated weight? Is this in the OCOMBWT weight? In sum, what is the best way to generate population-level estimates using the MTUS weights?

Thank you!
