How do create weighting given available data?

Hi everyone.

I'd like to ask how to I create a "weighting" variable given the available data?

I have a data showing the amount of time people working on various tasks and I wanna put more weights on those spending longer on either A, B or nth task in relation to a continous dependent variable Y.

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Hi

You can use the same amount of time spent on task as weight. In the proc step you should write:

weight   <time spent>;
