It is hard to tell exactly what you've got from your message. But it sounds like your data are from a survey with a complex sample, and the replicate weights have been created by the survey producer to allow the calculation of standard errors that take account of the complex sample design, using the survey jackknife approach. If this is the case, then your main weight is not, actually a frequency weight, its a pweight.

If this is the case, then Stata's -jknife- command is NOT what you want. Rather, you should look at my -svr- suite of commands, which are designed to allow exactly this sort of analysis. They are available from SSC-- type

. ssc desc svr

and go from there.

If I've not correctly guessed the situation with your data, then all bets are off.

I'd like to run analyses using jackknife estimation.  My dataset has a
frequency weight and replicate weights (50) to be used in the jknife
command.  Stata does not seem to allow for specifying use of these weights.
Can anyone help me with the syntax, or does Stata really not allow that?

Also, is there a way to get Stata to allow the use of non-integer frequency
weights?

Thanks,
