Survey bootstrap and bootstrap weights

Stanislav Kolenikov ()

Summer North American Stata Users' Group Meetings 2008 from Stata Users Group

Abstract: In this presentation, I will review the bootstrap for complex surveys with designs featuring stratification, clustering, and unequal probability weights. I will present the Stata module bsweights, which creates the bootstrap weights for designs specified through and supported by svy. I will also provide simple demonstrations highlighting the use of the procedure and its syntax. I will discuss various tuning parameters and their impact on the performance of the procedure, and I will give arguments for the bootstrap by the method of weights in nonsurvey settings.
