I guess I wouldn't think of this as a weighting issue so much as an exposure issue. You have an incidence rate of crime that you are trying to model, but you observe counts of crimes, which depend on the size of the population that is exposed to the incidence rate. See for example the discussion of the exposure option in the manual discussion of _poisson_.Hello, We've been using the xtnbreg command to look at some crime data. Our unit of analysis is city*day. Some cities are much larger than others, however, so we would like to perform a specification in which we weight the cities by population. We would typically do this with the pweight option, but this is unavailable. iweights are possible but the standard errors are grossly incorrect. What can be done to compute the correct standard errors when using the iweight option?
