My question is whether I can use this "rim" weight as sampling weight in svyset in Stata for regressions and getting population proportion of voting a certain political party, say.  

My feeling is that I should not (use it as sampling weight) as it has nothing to do with the probability of a person in the population being selected in the sample - whose inverse is what sampling weight usually is. 

Any pointer or guidance will be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance. 

Best wishes,
Edmond
