Can stata calculate age-adjusted mortality rates?


    help dstdize

In S Juul: An Introduction To Stata for Health Researchers
(Stata Press 2006) you find a description, including access
to various standard populations.

-distrate- is an other useful command that computes age-standardized rates with improved confidence intervals


ssc de distrate

and then

ssc install distrate

The help file is provided with a worked example that you can run by clicking on the viewer window.
