yes, I follow you for "across strata" calculations. It is actually possible that within each stratum the PSU be oversampled. I have just come across a reference mentioning proportional allocation plus over-sampling of subpopulation. In which case, Phung's data set should contain variables indicated this over sub-sampling. However, if that were to be the case, then, to get his statistics _for each statum_ using his larger do file, would the solution not to use a sub-dataset and run his do file, this time with the svyset not cleared but reset with the key variables at the subdomain level? forvalues k = 1 (1) 26 { drop if strata~=`k' svyset strata XXX`k' svyset psu YYY`k' svyset pweight ZZZ`k' do analysis.do } TM -----Original Message----- From: AMIDON, CARRIE [mailto:camidon@ersgroup.com] Sent: 29 July 2003 14:38 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: RE: RE: RE: RE: repeating the same analysis for each stratum In that case it should be fine to use the if statement. When examining a subpopulation across strata, though, it is not appropriate to use the if statement because the variance calculation done by stata requires the information contained in the observations that do not meet the if statement for proper calculation.

If the PSU _within each stratum_ are selected with probability proportional to the size of the population, so that the distribution of sampled households matches the distribution of the population across the stratum, and the household units within each PSU are selected with equal probability, would each stratum sample not be a self-weighted sample ?

Read the portion of the svy commands in the manual that deals with subsets of samples in analysis. C.

I have done the analysis using the svy components for the entire database, and now would like to repeat the same analysis for each of the 26 strata. The planned analysis is already a do.file. I have not been able to figure out how run this do.file for each stratum efficiently as I am not a programmer. I have tried "by", but it does not work with the svymean or do command. Can someone give me some advice? I am using stata 7.0. Gratefully yours, Phung * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
