Actually, this is one of the types of cases where sub-setting the data is
ok, provided that the term "stratum" means literally the sampling stratum.
The reason is that the calculations are stratum specific, so if you subset
to all observations for a stratum or collection of strata, then it still
works ok.

That would potentially cause a problem with your standard errors since
you are trying to examine a subset. Read the portion of the svy commands
in the manual that deals with subsets of samples in analysis.

Hello Phung,

Would this work ? keep only the data for each stratum, and call your do
file. svyset, clear allows to clear the survey variable which I suppose
you have specified in your main analysis.do file.

forvalues k = 1 (1) 26 {
	drop if strata~=`k'
	svyset, clear
	do analysis.do
	}

Dear Statalist

I have a database for a complex survey with 26 strata and 100 PSUs. 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
