Hello, I am working on a project where we are looking at person-level pension data on a state-by-state basis from a pooled IPUMS CPS file for 2011-2014. We’re looking for a little help on making sure we choose the correct weighting for this analysis.
If we just had a national-level, single year analysis it looks like we could use the WTSUPP weight (since the variable is from the March Supplement) and we could also employ replicate weights. However, does anyone know whether we could use the same weights for a state-level, pooled analysis? Or would we have to make additional adjustments? We’ve looked around a bit but have not found anything definitive.
I would appreciate any input anyone could share. Thank you!
