Hello Kolenikov,
Thanks for you response. Actually NLSY97 is an acronym for'National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997'. It is a panel survey conducted on a nationally representative sample of American youths. The respondents are interviewed yearly. As of 2010, the NLSY97 had 13 waves of survey. Thanks.

There's not enough information to answer this question, unless you are
lucky enough to have somebody on the list who just have completed
their analysis of this data set last week. You can't assume that
anybody but you even knows what NLSY stands for, let alone how this
data set is structured. Describe the sample design, the goals of your
analysis and the ways these two weights were constructed.
