IPUMS-CPS Weights Renaming 2018
In February of 2018 IPUMS-CPS created individual weight variables for each supplement, including the ASEC. Prior to February of 2018, weighting information for all ASEC samples and any topical supplement variables were contained in WTSUPP and/or HWTSUPP. These variables have been replaced with a set of weight variables that are supplement-specific. A conversion chart is found below. Note that no weight values have changed, only variable names are different.
For more information about weighting in IPUMS-CPS, see the CPS Weights page.
