ANES Raking Implementation and Weighted Statistics
Released Oct 20, 2010 by Josh Pasek
This package provides a comprehensive system for selecting variables and weighting data to match the specifications of the American National Election Studies. The package includes methods for identifying discrepant variables, raking data, and assessing the effects of the raking algorithm. It also allows automated re-raking if target variables fall outside identified bounds and allows greater user specification than other available raking algorithms. A variety of functions for producing simple weighted statistics are also included, such as weighted histograms, Pearson's correlations, partial correlations, Chi-Squareds, and t-tests.
