V080101: WT.1. PRE CROSS-SECTION SAMPLE WEIGHT - POST-STRAT, centered
CROSS-SECTION SAMPLE WEIGHT - PRE-ELECTION WAVE, POST-STRATIFIED: centered at mean 1.0
Notes: Use of sample weighting is necessary for a representative cross-section. For the Pre-election and Post-election waves of the ANES 2008 Time Series Study, either WT.1 and WT.2 may be used (weights centered at a mean of 1.0), or else WT.1a and WT.2a (not centered). Using V080101, the integer [rounded] value of the sum of cases equals the pre-election unweighted number of cases, 2,322.
Based upon 2,322 valid cases out of 2,322 total cases.
