general population sample
Dear sir /madam,
We would like to use only the General Population Comparison sample. Which of the weight variables should we use in our analysis?

If you are interested in extra 5 minutes questions for general population only - please use extra 5 minutes weight. Please do not exclude any of ethnic groups from this sample - it represents them as they are found in general population.
If you are interested in general population - use any weight provided. There are very few situations where one would specifically want to use general population sample without ethnic boost - if you think your situation is such - please explain. We usually discourage such use and do not provide such weights, but it is possible to recreate them from existing weights.
