(http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/grouped.html) that maybe helpful. The correct number of obs is 19 - since with frequency weights you are treating each observation as one or more real observations. See [U]23.16.1 Frequency Weights Hope this helps, Scott * * 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/
