Is cement to sand ratio by weight?

The instructions suggest a mix of sand:cement at ratio 4:1. Is this by weight rather than the quantity you measure with a trowel/spade?

Now, 1 heap of sand on the trowel/spade weighs more than a similar heap of cement. So weight wise this sand:cement ratio will be something like 4+:1
