i am currently working with a special version of the SCF that is hosted by uc berkeley and i am experiencing an issue with it.
the special version of this dataset also has this characteristic even though it's hosted externally:
As a result of multiple imputation, the dataset you are downloading contains five times the number of actual observations. Failure to account for the imputations and the complex sample design will result in incorrect estimation of standard errors.
this is the problem: my dataset doesn't appear to contain the replicate weights. i am only given the sample weights. the berkeley website does not seem to contain the replicate weights either.
i am working in r with
srvyr and i can't use
as_survey_rep() because i have no replicate weight variable that i know of. i can use
as_survey(), but i don't think this corrects the sample size issue.
anybody have any advice? thank you in advance.
