st: replicate weights using svr commands in Stata8 |

Dear Statalisters

I have a query about the svr programs.

I am using a dataset containing unit record data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The ABS provides a set of 30 replicate weights for each case in the dataset. According to their documentation, the estimated standard error of an estimate can be found using the following formula :

SE(y) = sqrt( 29/30 S ( y(g) - y )*( y(g) - y ) )

where y(g) is the gth estimate of the parameter y using the gth set of replicate weights

and y is the estimate of the parameter using the full person weight

The supplied dataset includes a person weight for each case, but no information on strata or psu.

I assume that I can use the svr programs to calculate standard errors but I can't quite figure out the exact syntax of the command. I assume that I need to use the brr version of svrset, but this requires me to enter a number of degrees of freedom, and I don't understand what this refers to.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Susan Donath
