DateSubjectDescription
2017-7-20v327 WEIGHT (Weighting factor) - Canada: 3 cases on 0Due to the fact that the weighting factor is based on the region R lives in, and that this information is missing for three cases, the weighting factor is here erronously coded to code 0. You can scale down the problem by recoding the weighting factor for these three cases into 1.
