Hello, can I use replicate weights such as wt1 - wt42 rather than one probability weight with the complex sample routines in Mplus? Thanks Pat Berglund.

An article by Laura Stapleton came out in the most recent issue of the SEM journal which shows how to use SAS in conjunction with Mplus and replicate weights. We will eventually be adding this to Mplus. In the meantime, you can see that article.

Thanks, I will check this out. Pat Berglund

Dear Dr. Asparouhov and Dr. Muthen,

In your paper
"Asparouhov, T., & Muthen, B. O. (2010). Resampling methods in Mplus for complex survey data. Los Angeles: Muthen & Muthen", you provide syntax for using replicate weights:

DATA: FILE IS ECLS repw.dat;
VARIABLE: NAMES=C1RGSCAL C1RMSCAL C1RRSCAL P1NUMPLA
C1CPTW0 C1CPTSTR NEWPSU W1-W90;
USEVAR=C1RGSCAL C1RMSCAL C1RRSCAL P1NUMPLA;
WEIGHT=C1CPTW0;
REPWEIGHT=W1-W90;
ANALYSIS: TYPE=COMPLEX;
REPSE=JACKKNIFE2;

What is the variable "C1CPTW0"? final student sampling weight?

Many thanks.

Mark

It's the original sampling weight variable.

Hi Linda -

I'm using the ECLS-K data and am confused after reading the above paper and the others by Tihomir on analyzing multilevel complex samples in Mplus -- about which weights to use for these data. The file for the longitudinal data comes with both PSU and Strata weights, and full sample weights and Jackknife2 replicate weights for the kids.

Since I want to take the unequal selection probabilities of the schools into account for my longitudinal analysis, I'm thinking that I should set up a growth model multivariate style, but as a multilevel model to take PSUs and strata into account.

So, do I use the Taylor linearization weights for the clusters and strata for the multilevel part, as well as the full sample and JK2 replicate weights for the kids?

Thanks!
Bruce

Hi Linda -

Whoops! I answered my own question by re-reading the manual, of all things.

Where it says clearly "The STRATIFICATION and CLUSTER options may not be used in conjunction with the REPWEIGHTS option."

So, I guess the best thing would be to try the analysis both ways: with COMPLEX TWOLEVEL and with REPWEIGHTS?

Thanks,
Bruce

That seems reasonable.

Dr. Muthen,

In the complex survey data I am working now has only one weight--final weight.

Can final weight be placed under WEIGHT command?

Thank you.

Yes.
