BRRVAR, which uses the Balanced Repeated Replication approach, was designed for use with the Statistical Analysis System (SAS). It was created for the National Center for Education Statistics, to enlarge their capacity to estimate and analyze sampling errors for statistics generated from educational surveys with complex sampling designs. BRRVAR requires that the primary sampling units be organized into pairs that reflect the actual sampling design. Common statistics are generated, including sums, means, standard deviations, covariances, correlations, and regression coefficients. For each statistic, an overall estimate is computed along with the estimate of the standard error of the statistic and the approximate 95% confidence bounds for the statistic. The appendices include examples of an input dataset, SAS statements and output, and a computer program listing. (Author/GDC)
