The weights discussed here apply to the entire CHIP sample, including all provinces, regions, and rural, urban and migrant subsamples. Researchers analyzing only part of the CHIP survey data, for example, only the urban subsample or only the rural subsample, will want to construct sampling weights appropriate to their subsamples, which can be done making use of the information in this report.
