Using Stata with Statistics Canada data: Incorporating complex survey design into analysis
Most Statistics Canada data are based on surveys with complex survey designs. To allow users to account for the survey design in their analyses, Statistics Canada generally provides both a probability weight and a set of survey bootstrap weights in the survey data files. This presentation will give an overview of how to use the survey commands in Stata to account for the complex survey design using the weights and bootstrap weights provided. It will also give some practical advice on using these elements with various surveys and some of the pitfalls to avoid.
