Henry,

Perhaps the authors gave a reference for the their method. That is what I would like to know.

Steve, What do you mean by a reference exactly? The method, exactly, or simply the use of the method? In a paper entitled "Are decoupled farm program payments really decoupled" by Goodwin and Mishra (American J. of Agricultural Economics, 2006), the authors note that to arrive at valid SEs, they bootstrap and incorporate the probability weights. A more common method used in the case of NASS (Nat'l agricultural statistics service) data is to use the delete-a-group jackknife method. I hope this helps. HenryHenry, Do you have a reference for this procedure? I'm unfamiliar with it.

That is, I don't want the program to randomly select observations from my sample, I want it to select it based on probability weights that I've assigned to each observation. I know there is a "bswreg" ado file that does it with bootstrapped weights but I don't have bootstrapped weights, I have pweights. I essentially want to calculate valid standard errors (or MSEs) using data from a complex survey that was stratified and that comes with pweights in the dataset. Any help is muchappreciated. >Henry * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
