Re: st: can I generate my own bootstrap weights for survey data?
Dongyi Du <firstname.lastname@example.org> asks how to generate bootstrap replicate weights:

There doesn't seem to be much consensus in the survey literature regarding the
Stas Kolenikov <email@example.com> suggested a paper by Rao & Wu (giving a
full reference) and gives some advice. Although I cannot suggest how to
generate your "replicate weight variables", I can point you to my unofficial
-bs4rw- command once you have figured a way of generating them. For
reference, here is the archive of my original Statalist post about -bs4rw-
Dongyi did not indicate the purpose/need for the 'bootstrap weights', but
maybe -svy jackknife- (or -svy brr- assuming a 2 PSU/Stratum design) can be
used for variance estimation.
