Sample weights

Hello, I've downloaded the census data for Bangladesh for 2011 and got a sample of 7+ million observations, how do I know what's the sample weight?

Staff Answer

In all IPUMS International samples, there are two weights available for analysis, a personal level weight (PERWT) and a household level weight (HHWT). Both of these weights are pre-selected when you create an extract, so you should see them in your file.
