Thanks, Maarten.
 
I would be grateful, if anyone would l me know the command for mean workplace years of education: based on percentage of the workforce in each of k occupations times average years of education for that occupation from worker respondents, say,
 
(%OCCjk) * (Sum eijk/nk)        k=1, ...,9
 
where j is the jth workplace, i is the ith individual 
 
 
Thanks

Assuming that the variable that identifies workplace is called
workplace and the variable that identifies the years of education is
called ed: 
by workplace: egen meaned = mean(ed)
