13. Weighting is not that simple
Edited on Mon Jan-17-05 04:07 PM by flintdem
The 200 VNS Exit poll weight variable ranges from .111 to 8.348 with nearly 1000 values in between. How ever exit polls are weighted, they use multiple combinations of demographic, region and party id variables put into one weight variable to produce the outcome.

The 1996 VNS is similar with .15 to 5.18 weighting with several hundred values in between.
