The adaptation or "satiation" procedure, 30 rapid repetitions of the(More)
Weighting for the monthly Current Population Survey includes an iterative proportional fitting procedure (" second-stage ratio adjustment " or " raking ") that forces CPS estimates to match three sets of population control totals. The procedure now in place successively computes ratio adjustments to weights so that estimates are forced to match three sets(More)
