COUNTING UNITS AND WEIGHTS
Weighting is the process of adjusting results from a sample survey to infer results for the total population. To do this, a 'weight' is allocated to each sample unit. The weight is the value that indicates how many population units are represented by the sample unit.
As the underlying format of the Characteristics of Recent Migrants TableBuilder file is structured as a single person level, there is only one weight provided - a person weight. The Summation Options section in the Customise Table panel in TableBuilder contains this weight. When producing tables the person weights will be automatically applied to tables. All tables produced provide person estimates.
