This is a response to Nick Cox's advice. The code you suggested actually
doesn't work because su doesn't allow for pweights either!
Shucks. I should have remembered the First Law of -svy- and Statalist:
Even when the answer to a -svy- question appears obvious, you will probably be wrong.

svymean varname [pweight=x], by(month)
matrix e=e(est)
generate ET= .
qui forval i = 1/12 {
replace ET=el(e,1,`i') if month==`i'
}
