Is the weighted CPS/ACES representative of occupational shares nationally?


#1

I know that using weight variables with the CPS/ACES samples is representative of the population, but does it follow that using the weighted data to calculate occupational shares would be representative?


#2

Yes, using the weight variable WTSUPP will calculate a reliable estimate of the representative share various occupations within the population.


#3

Would it also be representative at the state-industry level? and county-industry level? Thank you


#4

Yes, these calculations will also be representative at the state and county level.
