Needed help on using the PERWT variable to create replicate samples in RStudio

Hi! I'm using ACS data for 2011-2014. I needed help on using the PERWT variable to create replicate samples. I understand there are easy ways to do this on Stata, but I only have access to R so I wanted to know how I can do this on RStudio.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

There are a number of different user-written packages that include functions for handling replicate weights in R. Here is an example of a household level analysis of ACS data using replicate weights in R that is a good starting point. You will need to select the REPWTP from the data selection menue which will include the 80 person level replicate weight variables in your extract.

I hope this helps.
