Sampling Weight

Postby Ashvika25 » Wed Oct 22, 2014 5:44 am

Hi there,

I am new to Eviews and have currently been using EViews 7. I am using data from the DHS surveys which contains a series which is the sampling weight. I just wanted to know how to apply that weight to any descriptive statistics produced and regressions run? I am really sorry if this sounds silly and simple. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ash

Sampling weights usually act as an inverse variance weighting. You can input such weights from the "Options" tab of the equation editor.

Hi,

I'm really sorry, but I'm having another issue with sampling weights. I am running a logit regression on some survey data and unlike the OLS regression, there is no option to include the sampling weight in the 'Options' tab of the Equation Editor. I was wondering how to get around this problem? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ash

EViews doesn't offer weighted logit.
