One way to get what you want, assuming you don't need standard errors or confidence intervals, is us use -tabulate- with iweights (and NOT use -svy:-).

E.g.

tab var1 if var2==1 [iw=weight], sort

This will give you the same point estimates as svy: tab, and allow you access to the sort option.

Best,
Nick WInter

This is probably too simple to post, but I'm nearing a deadline and am
not making progress on my own.

I have a large data set with ICD-9 diagnostic information.  I want to
locate the most frequently listed ICD-9 codes by several sub-groups.
The data are from a complex survey design, so the svy commands are
warranted.  However, I cannot seem to translate:

tab var1 if var2==1, sort

into

svy, subpop(var2): tab var1, sort

Any ideas?  I'm working with STATA 9.0
