Dear Professor,

In my data, I have a weight that weights the level 2 units to the same size (to 1000). The number of observations differ (for example 3000 in the first level 2 unit and 1000 in the next level 2 unit).

Is it correct to say that the multilevel procedure of mplus makes each level 2 unit have the same weight, or the same size so that they equally matter the same in the estimation?

If you do that weighting, then yes that would seem to be the case. But I am not sure I would recommend it.
