Weights for Non Respondents

Are weights available for non respondents in ATUS? I need to calculate average characteristics of non respondents (children) and merge those to respondents (mothers). So I would like to calculate these averages by using weights.

The variable BWT provides a sampling weight for all persons in the ATUS sample; it is available for both respondents and non-respondents. Please note that ATUS employs a complex sample design and offers replicate weights for variance estimation purposes; the 160 replicate base weights can be added to your data file by including the RBWT variable.
