Person weight in 1991 Census of Argentina.

Hi,


I am working with various Census of Argentina. I did not have problems with many of them using the variable 'perwt' to weight people, but it does not work in Census 1991. I have seen that I must use another variable as person weight, since this census has loads of missings values, but I do not know which is the right variable.


I hope you can help me.


Thank you,

Carla

NOTE: Roughly half the population lacks data for several important write-in variables, including occupation, industry, birthplace, and previous residence. An alternative weight variable, AR91A434 (WTPERC), properly adjusts the statistics, and it should be applied to any analyses involving the affected variables.
