I need to age standardize/adjust proportions that I have generated from
survey data.

Theoretically I think I want to work with the stdize command but I don't
have the data set up properly and am not sure how to handle it.

I have the crude proportions directly from the dataset.  The age groupings
or strata have been created(18-24, 25-44, 45-64, and >65) with a variable
to represent each group.  From census data I have the adjustment weight for
each group (.128810, .401725, .299194, .17021).

I realize I could do the standardization by hand but that would not account
for the complex survey design.  Any help would be much appreciated.
