I have been trying to replicate the margin of error reported for the CPS Voting and Registration Supplement. Specifically, I am trying to replicate the margin of error reported for racial/ethnic groups as reported in this table: https://www2.census.gov/programs-surv…
I am using the replicate weights from the Census websight and following the instructions for implementing these weights in Stata that are listed on this website. However, I am unable to produce standard errors that would result in the margin of error they report in the sheet.
I assume that the use of replicate weights is the correct way to try to reproduce these margins, but am I missing something?
Here is the stata code I used to try to reproduce the national figures:
svyset [iw=weight], sdrweight(repwgt1-repwgt160) vce(sdr) mse
* Create indicator for citizen voting age respondents
gen citva=1 if citizen==1 & voting_age==1
recode citva .=0
svy, subpop(citva): mean vote, over(race)
