Ben, I believe that I have the issued worked out. Thanks for the help. Following the suggestions given in http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/supweight.html I ran my model (svy, subpop(maleage): nbreg) and pulled the standard deviations of my independent variables using both the -estadd- and -listcoef- methods. As mentioned before they are not the same. From here I wanted to see if I could use the above mentioned FAQ to reproduce the -estadd- and -listcoef- sd's. summarize persfight [aw=gs] if maleage == 1 & e(sample) produced the same sd's as -estadd- with an n = 3353. summarize persfight [aw=gs] if e(sample) produced the same sd's as -listcoef- with an n = 8619. The difference (as you mentioned earlier) is in the use of the subpopulation. -listcoef- computes the sd's across all cases (in this instance males and females ages 12 to 18 yrs) which is not what I wanted here. -estadd- limits the calculation only to males in the appropriate age. Thanks again.

Well, I'm not sure. It takes into account the weights and the -subpop()- option, but -estadd ebsd- just uses plain -summarize- and no adjustment is made for degrees of freedom or so, which I assume would have to if there are strata and/or clusters. What would be the "correct" formula for the SD in this case? Is there a Stata command that computes it? ben On 9/25/07, Carter Rees <carterrees@gmail.com> wrote: > Ben, > > The command I am using is svy subpop(): nbreg, so yes the subpop option is > specified for my model.
