This report describes the sampling and weighting methodology that was used in the 2012 Military Family Life Project (2012 MFLP). First, sample records were classified for weighting according to eligibility for the survey and completion of the return. Second, the sampling weights (the inverse of the selection probabilities) were adjusted to account for sample members’ whose eligibility could not be determined. Third, the eligibility-adjusted weights were adjusted to account for eligible sample members who did not return usable questionnaires. Fourth, the adjusted weights were post-stratified to population totals. Finally, sampling strata were collapsed to create strata for variance estimation by Taylor series linearization.
