Calculation of Nonresponse-Adjusted Student Weights for Respondents to the NLS Base-Year and First Follow-up Surveys. RTI 22U-884-3.
Moore, R. Paul
The report traces the activities which led to the development of the adjusted weights--beginning with the basic National Longitudinal Study design, the base-year weight calculations, and the resurvey procedures. Next, the report describes the first follow-up weight calculations (including unadjusted student weights), nonresponse adjustment methodology, classifier variables, weighting classes, and the adjusted weights calculations. The last pages contain tables showing the nonresponse adjustment factors for each weighting class as well as the total number of students, total number of responding students, sum of all unadjusted weights, and the sum of the respondent unadjusted weights for each weighting class.
