We are doing a Race, Gender, and Employment project over time (1930-current). Are there specific weights to use for the race/ethnicity variables. Specifically for Hispanic, Black, Asian, and White.

Since you are interested in person-level analyses you should use the weight variable PERWT (the description includes links to more detailed discussions of the sample weights and designs). Since the range of years you are interested in includes 1940 and 1950, you may need to check if some of the variables were asked only of the Sample Line respondents which would require you to use SLWT for those years. You can tell if a variable requires SLWT by looking at the Universe statement.

I hope this helps.
