Question

Status:Closed    Asked:Feb 15, 2017 - 05:11 PM

Is the weighted CPS/ACES representative of occupational shares nationally?

I know that using weight variables with the CPS/ACES samples is representative of the population, but does it follow that using the weighted data to calculate occupational shares would be representative?

Yes, using the weight variable WTSUPP will calculate a reliable estimate of the representative share various occupations within the population.
