kmr: A Command to Correct Survey Weights for Unit Nonresponse using Group's Response Rates

Abstract

This article describes kmr, a Stata command to estimate a micro compliance function using group’s nonresponse rates (2007, Journal of Econometrics 136, pp213-235), which can be used to correct survey weights for unit nonresponse. We illustrate the use of kmr with an empirical example using the Current Population Survey and state-level nonresponse rates.
