I have a quick question. I currently have a 5% random sample of Canada. I also have 4 extra random samples of only the four largest urban cities (I have dropped duplicate observations between samples).

What is the best strategy to include these extra samples and keep the sample representative of the country. I intend to conditon on these cities with dummy variable in my regression.  However, I would prefer to use sample weights but I am not sure the best way to go about creating them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Jason
