Sorry, still confused. If I dont have fpc's ready in my dataset (calculate myself?) that means that R will use the weight of an individual for each of his repeated observations. But is that then still correct? The "cluster" individual is ignored and each observation of an individual has the same weight.

Thanks a lot.
