I am working with household survey data, where the sample is not clustered, not
stratified, but has sampling weights. Ultimately, I would like to test the
equality of the variance of my labor wage variable...

Johannes:

Can you please give some more detail about the sampling design? Please include information about the target population and sampling procedure, whether the same households appeared more than one time in the survey, and how the weighting was done. A URL reference to the original methodology document, hopefully in English, would be sufficient. If necessary, send the document to me privately.

I have never encountered a houshold survey that was not done in at least two stages, and I have never seen a national or regional survey which was not stratified in some way. Without being sure of your set up, I am reluctant to try to answer your question.

Steven
