Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey, 2008
SummaryThe Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey (NASIS) aims to survey quality of life in the state of Nebraska, covering topics such as the environment, housing, health, recreation, occupation, education, family life, among others. A set of core questions are repeated each year, and additional questions are purchased by those interested in gathering additional data. The 2008 NASIS asks questions about driving behavior, cell phone usage, disaster response, health, immigration, and religion.
The ARDA has added five additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.

Weight Variable: PWEIGHT, HWEIGHT
"Two weights are included in the 2008 NASIS data set. The first weight, called PWEIGHT, produces a representative sample of individuals 19 and older living in households in the state. PWEIGHT contains an adjustment for the region, sex, and age bias found in the sample and a correction factor to compensate for differential probability of selection of the respondent within households with varying numbers of adults present. ... Users of NASIS data requiring a sample of individuals would use the data weighted by the PWEIGHT variable.
"The second weight, HWEIGHT, is used when the information needed is at the household level. Use of HWEIGHT gives an age-adjusted sample of households in the state." (NASIS 2008 Methodology Report - see link below)
