When analysing a Household level item, you may want to change the summation weight from persons to households. For example, if you wanted to know the number of households in a state rather than the number of persons living in that state. In this case, you would add the weight called 'Household weight PAA' from the Summation Options heading. The default weight is 'Person weight PAA' - a count of persons.
The weighted counts for the selected person and the hearing level are the same, which is because only a maximum of one hearing test was counted for each person. When analysing any item from the Hearing level, you must use the 'Hearing test weight'. You would add the weight called 'Hearing' from the Summation Options heading. If the correct weight is not used, the errors associated with the data will be incorrect.
Not Applicable Categories
Most data items included in the TableBuilder file include a 'Not applicable' category. The classification values of these 'Not applicable' categories, where relevant, are shown in the data item list on the Downloads page. The 'Not applicable' category generally represents the number of people who were not asked a particular question or the number of people excluded from the population for a data item when that data was derived (e.g. Age started having daily insulin injections is not applicable for people who do not have daily insulin injections).
The population relevant to each data item is identified in the data item list and should be kept in mind when extracting and analysing data. The actual population estimate for each data item is equal to the total cumulative frequency minus the 'Not applicable' category.
Continuous data items
TableBuilder includes a number of continuous variables:

A confidentiality process called perturbation is applied to the data in TableBuilder to avoid releasing information that may lead to the identification of individuals, families, households, dwellings or businesses. See Confidentiality in the TableBuilder user guide.
