Replicate Weight Files
For many purposes, one must consider the sampling error of SCF estimates. However, because detailed information on the sample design cannot be released, and because of the complexity of the SCF design, users cannot apply some of the standard procedures for variance estimation. A set of sample replicates has been created with bootstrap techniques and analysis weights have been computed independently for each replicate. Analysts may use these weights to make approximate estimates of sampling variance. Replicate weights corresponding to X42001 are available. See the codebook for more details. When uncompressed and restored to a V9.1.3 engine SAS data set, each file requires 48.7 MB of disk space.
WARNING: Some browser versions will download these files in unzipped form; the resulting PROC CPORT transport file will require 41 MB of disk space, the resulting PROC COPY transport file will require 46.8 MB of disk space, and the resulting Stata file will require 21.5 MB of disk space.
