Abstract:

The 1979 DoD Survey of Personnel Entering Military Service was administered to individuals signing military enlistment contracts at Armed Forces Entrance Examination Stations AFEES. As with all surveys, some individuals in the sampled population did not respond and complete an AFEES Survey. This Note describes a methodology used to develop weights which make the respondent sample more representative of the underlying population with respect to known population demographic parameters. The weights have fairly high efficiency, so population inferences based on the weighted broaden the applications of the database. The Note also discusses appropriate uses of the weighted file and briefly reviews several recent articles on applications of survey weights to statistical analysis. Author
