What is the difference between person and replicate weights in ACS?
#2

Replicate weights are many separate weights at the household and person levels that allow users to generate empirically derived standard error estimates. These standard errors can then be used in hypothesis testing and in the construction of confidence intervals around the sample estimate of interest. For more information on replicate weights, please see the IPUMS-USA replicate weight FAQ page.
