REPWEIGHTS variables;
The REPWEIGHTS statement names variables that provide replicate weights.
If you use a REPWEIGHTS statement and you specify METHOD=HOTDECK in the PROC SURVEYIMPUTE statement, the procedure does not adjust the replicate weights.
If you use a REPWEIGHTS statement and you specify METHOD=FEFI in the PROC SURVEYIMPUTE statement, the procedure adjusts the replicate weights.
Each REPWEIGHTS variable should contain the weights for a single replicate, and the number of replicates should equal the number of REPWEIGHTS variables. The REPWEIGHTS variables must be numeric, and the variable values must be nonnegative numbers.
If you provide replicate weights in a REPWEIGHTS statement, you do not need to use a CLUSTER or STRATA statement.
If you use a REPWEIGHTS statement but do not use a WEIGHT statement, PROC SURVEYIMPUTE uses the average of each observation’s replicate weights as the observation’s weight.
