It is not clear to me that your situation is one leading
to the use of pweights.

Either way, -tabulate- does not support pweights. That
is implied in the help, which explains that only the
other kinds of weight are supported.

Use of pweights generally requires prior use of -svyset-
and then -svy- commands.

I'm using data that is weighted for the overpresentation of east-germany (weighting variable=weight).

For the regression I just add [pweight=dweight] to weight my data.

This command does not work with: tab x y [pweight=weight]

I don't understand why, because it seams quite important to wheight the data for descriptions about germany as a whole.
