V960005A: 96PR: NEW TIME-SERIES WEIGHT (PRE)

Process.6a Additional 1996 Time-series weight - Pre

Notes: This weight should be used with Pre-election variables. Variables V960005a and V960005b were created because V960005 did not correct for an underrepresentation in Study data of younger and less-educated respondents. V960005a and V960005b are constructed to post-stratify the NES data to match the Current Population Study (CPS) estimate of the distribution of age group by education level. V960005b should be used with Post- election variables. See "NEW WEIGHTS FOR THE 1996 STUDY" in the introductory portion of this codebook and Appendix document "Post-Stratified Cross-Sectional Analysis Weights for the 1992, 1994 and 1996 NES data." This weight should be used in analyses in which the 1996 Panel is compared to earlier unweighted National Election Studies data collections. This weight is centered with a mean of 1.0. This is a 6- digit variable with a coded decimal point and 4 actual decimal places.
