Dear Statalist Users,

I have a quick question about calculating sampling error. 

I have 2-stage-sampling survey of households using an outdated frame. 

I want to show the sampling errors for each estimate.

How do I do that in Stata 9?

Thank you in advance. Best, Anna

Here are some tables if you think this might be useful: 
 svyset psu [pw=pweight], strata(strata_unique) poststrata(type_unique) postweight(post_str_type) fpc(fpc) ///
>   || hhid_unique
      pweight: pweight
          VCE: linearized
   Poststrata: type_unique
   Postweight: post_str_type
     Strata 1: strata_unique
         SU 1: psu
        FPC 1: fpc
     Strata 2: <one>
         SU 2: hhid_unique
        FPC 2: <zero>

. svy: tab poor wave, col
(running tabulate on estimation sample)
Number of strata   =        96                  Number of obs      =      9577
Number of PSUs     =      1198                  Population size    =   7600000
N. of poststrata   =         8                  Design df          =      1102
