Response rate is around 50%. I need to set the FPC (finite population

a superpopulation. According to Stata help: fpc(varname) requests a finite population correction for the variance estimates. If varname has values less than or

where n_h = number of units sampled from

stratum h. If varname has values greater

error for varname to have values between 1

The UCLA page also states that: Stata will calculate the actual fpc for us; we just need to specify the population total. (Source: http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/seminars/svy_stata_8/Stata_svy_seminar_sampling.htm)

interpreting that I should set the fpc=1000?
