acs stata fixed effects help


#1

This is the first time I’m using both acs data and survey data in stata.

I’ve specified the data using the following command:

svyset cluster [pweight=hhwt], strata(strata)

Am I able to use fixed effects with survey data or is this not necessary? If so, what would be the appropriate command? I’m currently running regressions with svy: reg…

Help would be greatly appreciated

While it is certainly possible to use fixed effects with survey data, it is difficult to provide any specific advise here. Much of this decision relies on a number of different factors such as what kind of question you are asking and what sort of model you are using to answer this question. Here are a couple nice tutorials for using fixed effects in STATA, and here is a STATA list thread about using fixed effects with the svy: command.

I hope this helps.
