This package implements the micro data weighting procedures from:
- Creedy, John. “Survey Reweighting for Tax Microsimulation Modelling.” Treasury Working Paper Series. New Zealand Treasury, September 2003. http://ideas.repec.org/p/nzt/nztwps/03-17.html.
- Creedy, John, and Ivan Tuckwell. “Reweighting the New Zealand Household Economic Survey for Tax Microsimulation Modelling.” Treasury Working Paper Series. New Zealand Treasury, December 2003. https://ideas.repec.org/p/nzt/nztwps/03-33.html.
- Deville, Jean-Claude, and Carl-Erik Sarndal. “Calibration Estimators in Survey Sampling.” Journal of the American Statistical Association 87, no. 418 (1992): 376–82.
It generates a set of survey weights which are closest in some sense to a set of initial weights, but which can be used to weight the dataset so as to hit a set of targets, for example for genders, age ranges employment types and so on.
