i am currently working on an important project where i need to use weights. I constructed the weight and tried to use it with the srvyr package but it doesnt have any impact on the result and I don't know why...
It is actually pretty straight forward:
The weight construction:
dat_gew <- dat %>% mutate(gew = ifelse(Welle==1,(517.5/735),(517.5/300)))
test <- dat_gew %>% as_survey(weights = c(gew)) %>% group_by(Welle) %>% summarize(n = survey_mean(Welle, na.rm = T))
Syntax is literally the same as in the package creators example, but still i get the unweighted results...anyone knows the reason for it? The result should be n = 517.5 for both waves (= Welle).
Help is greatly appreciated!
