You can do this if you use the svy commands.  First you need to -svyset-
the data.  Assuming your weight variable is called weightvar:
svyset [pw=weightvar]
then you can use -svy:tab- which gives you the weighted count in
e(N_pop).
Cheers,

I'm applying pweights to a dataset and wish to work with the weighted
sum resulting from a -table- statement using r(). The problem arises
when the only r() output from -table- is r(N), when what I want is the
weighted value (as output in the results window). I can get access to
the weighted data using -summarize- just fine ("sum_w") but then I can't
use pweights. Is there a workaround, or am I just missing something
here?

Cheers

Cameron.
