CSES Module 1 Data Set Errata
Posted: January 13, 2003

Zeroes present in weights

Users should note that there are several cases in which individual weights (A1010-A1014) for CSES Module 1 are equal to 0. This is evident in Spain (1 record), Netherlands (287 records), and Belgium-Walloon (447 records).

This seems to have has occurred because some of the data used to calculate the weights were unavailable for some of the respondents. Those respondents with missing data in the components had their weights set to zero. Because this was a collaborator decision and the weights appear this way in the original data deposits, no change was made by CSES staff.
