There is a FAQ on this, at

The short answer is that you can use -summarize- with aweights, or you can calculate it from the results left behind by svymean.

Hello Stata users --

I am analyzing data that was collected using a clustered, stratified design. I am using the svy commands in stata to produce descriptive statistics:

svyset [pweight=wt], strata (strat) psu (school)

svymean x1, by(sex)

When using the svymean command, is there any way to produce the standard deviation adjusted for the design of the survey? I am able to get a standard error, but not the strandard deviation.
