I"ve tried to send this to you several times. I get an error message every time I try, but here is what I wanted to send. I'm confused by something in svymean and repcat. Here is what I've done: I've created some repcat categories using a variable I've created from the joint cell frequencies on a crosstabulation I've been using, and I want to use the ci's for each of the joint frequencies. So I did the following: . tab cells cells | Freq. Percent Cum. ------------+----------------------------------- 1 | 47 22.60 22.60 2 | 51 24.52 47.12 3 | 49 23.56 70.67 4 | 61 29.33 100.00 ------------+----------------------------------- Total | 208 100.00 . tab cells, gen(repcell) cells | Freq. Percent Cum. ------------+----------------------------------- 1 | 47 22.60 22.60 2 | 51 24.52 47.12 3 | 49 23.56 70.67 4 | 61 29.33 100.00 ------------+----------------------------------- Total | 208 100.00 . ci repcell1 Variable | Obs Mean Std. Err. [95% Conf. Interval] -------------+--------------------------------------------------------------- repcell1 | 208 .2259615 .0290679 .1686545 .2832686 . ci repcell2 Variable | Obs Mean Std. Err. [95% Conf. Interval] -------------+--------------------------------------------------------------- repcell2 | 208 .2451923 .029901 .1862427 .3041419 . ci repcell3 Variable | Obs Mean Std. Err. [95% Conf. Interval] -------------+--------------------------------------------------------------- repcell3 | 208 .2355769 .029495 .1774279 .293726 . ci repcell4 Variable | Obs Mean Std. Err. [95% Conf. Interval] -------------+--------------------------------------------------------------- repcell4 | 208 .2932692 .0316428 .2308857 .3556527 . Now shouldn't the samples be 47, 51, 49, and 61 for each of the confidence intervals I've created ci's for? I used the joint probabilities found in cells, which is derived from a crosstabulation for the repcell categories. If anyone can clear me up on this I would appreciate it. jon ebeling * * 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/
