Dear all,

I am running a regression using sample weights on a model which
involves binary independent variables. The question may be
elementary, but how should I interpret the parameter estimate of
such a variable? Since the application of sampel weights transforms
the 0s and 1s of binary variables into 0s and values between 0 and
1, it is not clear to me that the interpretation should remain the
same.

Many thanks,
Jonathan DePeri
