Hello,

I have a data set that I am analyzing that uses jackknife replicate weights for variance estimation (50 replicate weights are provided with the data). I am trying to get weighted estimates of the descriptive statistics of the variables that I am using in the analysis (means and proportions). I looked in the manual, but didn't see any example code.

If I simply use the weight command ( WEIGHT = fwgt;
REPWEIGHTS = fwgt1-fwgt50;)
and TYPE = COMPLEX REPSE=JACKKNIFE
and then request means in the model statement, would the estimates I get be weighted?

Any estimates in the results section based on the MODEL command are weighted. Descriptive statistics are obtained using the SAMPSTAT option of the OUTPUT command or TYPE=BASIC.
