Dear Stata users,

The -areg- command can estimate a fixed effects model with weights,
e.g.: areg  depvar indepvars [fweight=population], absorb(countycode).
However, when I do this, I get standard errors that are way too low,
because Stata artificially increases the sample size with the weight
variable (here: population). Adding -robust- is no solution. Does anyone
have a solution?
