I think that would be appropriate - you would be essentially adjusting your weighting scheme so you fall into situation #1.

comment What statistics are preserved under aggregation?
regarding the comment from @cbeleites, I think there is a theoretical answer here - an expansion of your suggestion that linear combinations are preserved. However, in practical application terms, it is very hard to draw a general conclusion on the validity of an approach, and there would need to be a specific example.

comment Resource for quality translations of famous American English speech/writing into Chinese?
Hi @xiaohouzi79, I don't think my problem can be made more specific than currently stated. If this is too open-ended for this site then please feel free to remove the question.

You mentioned each survey was already weighted. Are they weighted using similar methods? Or, did the particulars of the surveys necessitate using different weighting methods?
