Subject   st: analysis question related to svyset command

Dear Colleagues:

We have completed a rather complicated (to us) survey sample. The
sample was stratified on eight variables, for example, one variable
was race and another was gender.  We are only interested on making
comparisons on four variables at a time, but for different sets of
four variables.

My question is with regard to Stata's svyset command.  Should we set
the strata using all eight variables and then proceed with our
four-variable comparisons?  Or should we set the strata for the four
variables we are including in the analyses at hand, and change the
strata to reflect a different set of four variables for each set of
analyses?

Thanks,

Larry
