Rethinking the NLSCY weighting methodology : the lessons learned and the innovations introduced / editors: Claude Girard ... [et al.].: CS11-619/2009-2E-PDF

"The National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY) is a longitudinal survey of Canadian children conducted by Statistics Canada. Introduced in the mid-nineties, it is one of the first longitudinal surveys conducted by the Agency. Over the last two years, a team of methodologists have undertaken a major revision of NLSCY's weighting strategy after evidence of bias surfaced and deficiencies in its implementation were noted.

This paper describes these at length"--Abstract.
