{title:Correlations of variables for survey data, with with replication-based standard errors}
{p 8 17}{cmd:svrcorr}{space 2}[{it:varlist}] [{cmd:if} {it:exp}]
[{cmd:in} {it:range}] [{cmd:,}
{cmd:pw} {cmdab:o:bs} {cmd:sig} {cmdab:p:rint(}{it:#}{cmd:)} {cmdab:st:ar(}{it:#}{cmd:)}
{cmdab:b:onferroni} {cmdab:sid:ak}
{cmd:by} {it:...} {cmd::} may be used with the above commands; see {help by}.
{title:Description}
{p}{cmd:svrcorr} displays the correlation matrix for {it:varlist} or, if {it:varlist} is not
specified, for all variables in the data. Observations are excluded from the calculation due to missing values on
a casewise basis, unless the {cmd:pw} option is specified.
{p}Significance levels of the correlations are based on standard errors that are calculated
using a series of user-supplied replication weights, by
balanced repeated replication (BRR) or the survey jackknife (JK1, JK2, or JKn).
This is an alternate method to the Taylor series linearization methods
used by Stata's {help svy} commands. See {help survwgt} for details on the
creation of weights and estimation of variances with replication.
{title:Options}
{p 0 4}{cmd:pw} specifies that observations are to be excluded from the calculations on a pairwise basis. The default is
casewise.
{p 0 4}{cmd:obs} adds a line to each row of the matrix reporting the number of observations used
in calculating the correlation coefficient.
{p 0 4}{cmd:sig} adds a line to each row of the matrix reporting the significance level of each correlation coefficient.
{p 0 4}{cmd:print(}{it:#}{cmd:)} specifies the significance level of correlation coefficients to be printed.
Coefficients with larger significance levels are left blank. {cmd:print(10)} or {cmd:print(.1)}
would list only coefficients significant at the 10% level or better.
{p 0 4}{cmd:star(}{it:#}{cmd:)} specifies the significance level of coefficients to be starred.
{cmd:star(5)} or {cmd:star(.05)} would star all coefficients significant at the 5% level or better.
{p 0 4}{cmd:bonferroni} makes the Bonferroni adjustment to calculated significance levels.
This affects printed significance levels and the {cmd:print()} and {cmd:star()} options.
{cmd:"pwcorr, print(.05) bonferroni"} prints coefficients with Bonferroni-adjusted
significance levels of .05 or less.
{p 0 4}{cmd:sidak} makes the Sidak adjustment to calculated significance levels.
This affects printed significance levels and the {cmd:print()} and {cmd:star()}
options. {cmd:"pwcorr, print(.05) sidak"} prints coefficients with Sidak-adjusted
significance levels of .05 or less.

{p 8 12}{inp:. svrcorr mrgrate dvcrate medage, pw obs sig}
{title:Methods and formulae}
{p}See {help survwgt} for details of the replication methods.
{p}For calculation of variances and significances, the correlations are first
transformed using Fisher's Z transformation, in order to normalize the distribution.
{title:Saved Results}
{p}{cmd:svrcorr} saves in r() the following for the last-calculated correlation:
rho the estimated correlation coefficient
N the number of observations
p the p-level
{title:Acknowledgements}
{p}These commands consists largely of the ado file code from official Stata's {cmd:pwcorr} command.
I would like to thank Bobby Gutierrez at StataCorp for advice on implementation of BRR.
