Lisa Marie Yarnell <>:
Note that pweights+cluster is all the survey machinery you need, since
you are doing superpopulation inference.
I.e. you would be computing SE for your IV models even if you had the
whole population, not a sample.
You can restrict to a subpop with an -if- qualifier in your case.
If you have a stratified survey, you will not quite get the right SE,
so not quite the right superpopulation inference, but the theory for
IV superpopulation inference is not developed yet.
See also and more recent papers
that cite that paper.
