I’m using ACS PUMS and trying to figure out % of households below X income breakdown by race of householder and spouse. The analysis unit is household as I want total household income so household weight should to be applied here, but I also want to include household head and his/her spouse’s race data which is a person level variable and person weight seems to be needed. Should I use both weights: household weight to determine N of households below X income and then person weight to calculate racial counts and percentages? Or can I simply use HHWT for both household level HHINCOME variable and person level RACE variable in my calculation?
Thanks for your help!
