Re-sampling for complex survey data

svybsamp2 , [if exp] [in range]

svybsamp2 requires that the survey design variables be identified using > svyset, see help svyset


svybsamp2 creates a new data set with _N randomly drawn observations (with replacement). Similarly to svybsamp (if installed), the procedure respects survey design, re-sampling within different combinations of strata and PSU. Therefore using the inflation factors (pweight, see help weights) the new sample can be used to get to the original "super-population".

svybsamp2 improves considerably the speed compared to the original svybsamp. However, the re-samplying procedure becomes slower as the number of strata in the sample increases.
