st: One-way tables with survey data

am working with a survey dataset and need to produce frequency distributions for a number of dichotomous variables. I have defined the dataset as survey data using the standard commands (Intercooled Stata v. 8.2):

svyset [pweight=pesomef]

The svytab command seems only to work with 2-say tables and the regular tab (tabulate, table, etc.) command produces the same result whether or not I define the data as survey data. I've read through the svytab command documentation several times as well as the documentation for table/tabulate commands and on Stata weights.

tab varname [pw=pesomef]

returns an error message that pweights are not allowed.

Surely I'm missing something, but I can't find it.

Could someone please help me with the appropriate syntax to produce a weighted one-way table for these variables?

Thanks in advance,

Steve
