Hello friends!
I wish to have a more explicit explanation about weights. I'm using a
variable called factor to expand the data from the sample that I'm using. My
variable factor have data like 118.54, 99.31, 154.62, etc. Why if I use
fweight=factor I get an error:  may not use noninteger frequency weights
r(401)?  Is this related with the decimals in the observations. If I use the
same variable in a different software (SPSS) I got no errors. Can somebody
explain what do I need to correct in order to execute procedures in Stata
with those numbers like factors?
Thank you very much to all.

Rodrigo
