if I were to

.regress Y X1 X2.Xn [pweight=weight]

would my standard error estimates be compromised as Winship and Radbill
noted back then, or does pweight now correct for any problems with these
estimates brought about by the act of weighting?
There was a lengthy discussion of weighting on Statalist several months ago and I think my part of it ended with much the same question: have the issues raised by Winship and Radbill been addressed by Stata today? I would think so, but if not a lot of effort has been put into things like pweights and the -svy- commands that don't work! Do any long-time Stata users happen to know when pweights were introduced? The Winship-Radbill article is very good and I'd love to see them do an update of it that discusses modern software and techniques.



Also, can anyone point me to any documentation as to exactly what/how
pweights are applies.  For example, I know that fweights are analogous
I don't have it handy, but the Stata User's Guide has a nice discussion of weighting in Ch. 23.
