Hi Steve, 

Thank you for your explanation of the term 'rim weighting' and
suggestion, Steve. 

I have a follow-up question. The rim weights that come with my dataset
range from 0.25 to 3.73.  As some of the values are less than 1 they are
not the inverse of probabilities but 'pweight' under SVYSET expects the
inverse of probabilities. Would this be a problem? If so, should I use
these rim weights under another one of the weight options? Many thanks
for your advice in advance. 

Best wishes,
Edmond
