  1. Weighting

    The process of weighting involves emphasizing the contribution of particular aspects of a phenomenon (or of a set of data) over others to an outcome or result; thereby highlighting those aspects in comparison to others in the analysis. That is, rather than each variable in the data set contributing equally to the final result, some of the data is adjusted to make a greater contribution than others. This is analogous to the practice of adding (extra) weight to one side of a pair of scales in order to favour either the buyer or seller. While weighting may be applied to a set of data, such as epidemiological data, it is more commonly applied to measurements of light, heat, sound, gamma radiation, and in fact any stimulus that is spread over a spectrum of frequencies.

    It's a better contract than a few ago, when its relevance as an oil pricing benchmark was questionable with the bulk of U.S. crude production trapped in the Midwest without adequate delivery, now with all the pipeline extensions and removal of transportation bottlenecks, the contract is a lot more efficient in delivery and should get a higher weighting compared to other crude grades out there.
