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!
