Unicon Corporation made the following notes about this variable:
(Note: the 2002+ files are actually SCHIP files and are most comparable to the 2001S file). In July 2005, the Census re-released the 2004 weights. They were recalculated based on more age detail for children to provide better estimates of children by single year of age. These TST weights will be the official weights in 2005. Apply this weight to ALL variables in 2001 forward and to supplemental variables in earlier years. Final weight (wgtfnl) may be applied to basic variables before 2001. The following may be used as weight origination guidelines: The household record gets the householder weight. The Primary Family family record gets the householder weight. The Nonfamily Householder family record gets the householder wgt. The Related subfamily record gets the subfamily head weight. The Unrelated subfamily record gets the subfamily head weight. The Secondary Individual record gets the secondary indivdual wgt. See discussion of weights in Appendix Q.
