svyset whatever
svy: mean x
gen dx = x-_b[x]

Dear infinite Stata-List wisdom,

I'm also fairly new to stata and apologize in advance if this
question has been answered before and I can't find it.
I have a data set with survey data, and I'd like to centralize a
couple variables.
Unfortunately the svy: command does not work with egen varmean=mean
(var). Is there any other way to pass the weighted means into a
constant for centralizing purposes?

Thank you,

Stephan
