Hi all StatalistersMy initial inclination is to go to sample 1 and code each case as 1 if not in sample 2, 2 if in sample 2. Then, use the -prtest- command to compare the 2 groups. But, my initial inclinations have been wrong before. The -prtest- command is discussed on the last page of this handout:

I am wondering about testing two proportions in the following setting:

Infinite overall population size (for all practical purposes)

Sample 1 taken from overall population

Sample 2 subsampled from sample 1

Since these are not two independent samples from the same overall population, I think I need to adjust the test by making a finite population correction somehow for sampling sample 2 from sample 1. Only I can't find any details on this nor a test that appears suitable in Stata.

Can anyone help?

What is the correct test?

Is there Stata-code available?
