The weights are obtained through the European Social Surveydatabase, Isuppose many researchers before me have used them. But, I have alsowonderedthat if in Stata, the weights are the inverse of the probabilitythat theobservation is included, and probabilities should be between zeroand 1, theinverse should have a minimum of 1, shouldn't it?
