Hello, all! I have a question on what to do with the sample weights when
combining cases of two related surveys.

A labor force survey was conducted. Each household was asked wether a person
left for abroad in the last 5 years. If yes, another set of questions was
asked. There are two datasets: one on the domestic labor force and the
second on the labor force that went abroad.

Both datasets use the same household sampling frame. Cases for each dataset
have sample weights based on population density and adjusted for enumeration
areas that were not enumerated, non-interview households, and population
projection. The two datasets are treated separately with their own set of
sample weights.

If I combine the two datasets to get total labor force in and out of
country, how do i recompute the sample weights?
