Description

Hello,

I am attempting to ascertain how many people moved into each U.K. region per year. To begin this process, I have run a svy tab of the mvyr and gor_dv variables, weighted with svyset k_psu [pweight = k_indpxui_lw], strata(k_strata).

However, the counts do not change between the weighted and unweighted data, and therefore my crosstabs returns typically single-digit counts of moves where thousands are expected in relation to the true population size.

I was hoping that you could inform me if/how weights could be used to make these counts of movements representative of their true population size?

I hope this is clear - apologies if I have missed something simple! Thank you
