Hello,

I am trying to construct gross flows by occupation (i.e., gross flows for each occupation group for individuals linked across two consecutive months in the basic monthly CPS) and I would be grateful for any guidance on which weights I should use for this application.

In particular, while I have used PANLWT to successfully replicate gross flows for the entire (civilian) population, my question that I would like to discuss is **whether PANLWT is appropriate for constructing gross flows for subpopulations (e.g., gross flows for occupational groups)** or if these weights are meant only for aggregating survey data to construct gross flows estimates for the entire population. If not, do you have any insights into how I should go about constructing the ideal weights for this application?

To quote a question asked by August in this previous thread:

Can I use [PANLWT] to create [gross flows] estimates for certain groups of the population?

Thank you in advance for your time and help!
