I am trying to run some sampling simulation and found an option in PROC SURVEYSELECT rep=nrep that would let me round repeated samples of a universe.
If my seed is fixed how does PROC SURVEYSELECT get the "seed" for the replicates. My example below compares the REP option vs a MACRO loop. For the proc surveyselect with replicate=1 has the same sample output as the macro loop 1 (just as expected).
I used to have a macro loop through proc surveyselect for repeated samples, but with the REP option PROC SURVEYSELECT is much faster.
