Hello, I’m using IPUMS- USA 2018 ACS 1-year and I’m struggling to recreate (with in the margin of error) the estimated civilian non institutionalized population between the ages 18-64 for the United States (197,888,546; ME 26,117) as found in table B18120.
I’m using the following filter in R and applying the person weight. This gives me an estimate of 198,010,297
filter(empstatd != 14 & empstatd != 15,
gq != 3,
age %in% (18:64))
I’m wondering if there is something I’m missing with one of the variables, or if there is any additional insight about recreating the reported ACS result.
