    About weighting

    Originally HHP consisted of two samples: a Budapest subsample and a national sample. The national sample consisted of approximately 2000 hhs and the capital subsample about 600. This two subsamples were treated separately till the 4th wave. Because of the lowered sample size, it was necessary to unify the subsamples.

    After finishing the HHP study a new version of database was created and the two subsamples were merged from the first wave.
