This demonstration will cover using Stata for survey data analysis of establishment surveys. Survey data arise from designed samples from a fixed population. In establishment surveys, a sampling unit represents an entire organization rather than an individual. We will briefly introduce the sampling methods used to collect survey data and discuss how they affect common estimators, such as totals, ratios, and regression coefficients, and their variance estimates. Finally, we will talk about poststratification, calibration, and subpopulation estimation, including how to work with certainty sampling units and strata with a single sampling unit. Each topic will be illustrated with an example using Stata to analyze an establishment survey. Knowledge of Stata is not required, but basic statistical knowledge, such as topics covered in an introductory statistics course, is assumed.
