For the 2014 ASEC sample, the Census Bureau divided the sample randomly into a 3/8 group and a 5/8 group. The smaller portion of the sample was given redesigned income questions. We have assigned WTSUPP to records so that both the 3/8ths file and the 5/8ths file independently sum to be representative of the entire US population. If both parts of the file are analyzed together and weighted using WTSUPP, the resulting estimates will be twice the US population. You can use the flag variable HFLAG to differentiate the respondent records. Please also see our User Note on the 3/8 file redesign.


Hope this helps.
