Daniel, I am not sure what you mean when you say the dependent variable is ordinal AND continuous, so I am just going to assume it's a continuous numerical variable. I'll be calling this variable y. I'll call the independent variable x, which I'll assume is numerical, but discrete (discrete because I am supposing you want to test the means of y over the levels of the factor x). I'll also suppose the pweights are in a variable called p. To keep the observations between the first and forth quartile then drop the observations you don't need by doing: summarize y, detail drop if y > r(p75) drop if y < r(p25) (By changing y to x in these lines of code you will drop the observations that are between the first and forth quartile of your independent variable x.) To do an equality of means I am supposing you want an ANOVA table, and (as you know) Stata's -anova- doesn't have a pweight option. So, here is something you could try. svyset [pweight=p] will tell Stata that p is the variable with your pweights in there. xi: svyregress y i.x will do the regression. Then use -test- to get it to tell you the significance of x: test _Ix_1 _Ix_2 (this list should contain all the dummy variables created for x) hope this is some help, May Boggess On Fri, 2003-07-04 at 16:43, DANIEL CARO wrote: > Dear Statalisters, > > I'm trying to test the equality of means of a dependent variable (ordinal > and continuous) between the first and fourth quartile of an independent > variable (in quartiles).
