I am doing an analysis with the MARCH current population survey. 
I am doing a person-level analysis. 

If I use the wgt varaible, stata asks me what kind of weight this is. 
Is it an analytic weight, pweight, fweight? 

Should I use the weight in my regressions, or in my tab commands. Do i need
to transform the weight in any way? 

thanks-
