Hi,

It is a limiteation of Stata 8's -svytab- that it does not do one-way tabulations directly. In version 9, this is supported.

However, this is a minor limitation, because you can create a second "variable" that is a constant, and use that as the second variable in a two-way crosstabulation. Like this:

. generate one = 1

. svytab myvar one

I 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-way 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. Surely I'm missing something, but I can't figure out what.

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

Thanks in advance,

Steve
