Hi Stata Users,

I am a relatively new user to Stata. I am using
weights (aweights=weight) to aggregate the data to
national estimates. However in the final result I get
n=sample size and not a larger number.

My initution believes that when using weight, the
final answer should have a much larger number than the
sample.
I assume that you are looking at the Freq. values in a -tabulate-.

If you use iweght, you should get what you are looking for.
