Probability weighting, Advanced Statistics

Probability weighting is the procedure of attaching weights equal to inverse of the probability of being selected, to each respondent's record in the sample survey. These weights are taken in use to compensate for the facts that sample elements might be selected at unequal sampling rates and have different probabilities of responding to the survey, and that some population elements might not be included in the list or frame used for sampling.
