Responder: st: svyset for stratified probability proportional to sizedesign
I suppose that pps do not need weights under a selfweighting design,
even though you should coorrect weights if you had no response....
.... I know a researcher that works in INSP too.. so I belive she can
give you a good advise to create your weights, her name is Hortensia
