13. If that's the case...
Then I am betting that the weights in the file are not the "final" weights, but rather the ones from an earlier release of the data.

Reason being, that would have been weighted based on completion rate, and the elderly were the group with the lowest completion rate, which would have resulted in the highest weight.

Perhaps I'll sum it up tomorrow and verify.

That would be kind of funny considering the crosstabs are, I believe, the final weighting.
