Statalist Members:

Those of you who analyze complex sample data using Stata know that Stata
has specific analytic commands to be used with complex sample data
(svyset; svy: tab; svy: mean; etc.).  I've been reviewing Stata's
graphics capabilities in preparation for writing a new report (I haven't
used Stata's graphics, yet).  It appears that Stata generates graphs
directly, generating means, proportions, etc., at the same time that it
generates the graph (as opposed to using figures from previously
generated tables).  This raises a question that I haven't been able to
answer by reviewing Stata Help, the Stata Survey Data manual, the Stata
Graphics manual, or searching the UCLA Stata website.  

I find no reference to a corresponding special set of graphics commands
for use with complex sample data.  In fact, I find no discussions
whatsoever regarding the graphing of complex sample data.  Does anyone
know where one can find information that will settle my concerns that
Stata's graphs will present properly generated proportions, means,
confidence intervals, etc., for complex samples?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide. 

Wayne
