st: question about survey commands |

Hi All, I am working with Stata version 8.2 in Windows Vista. I am working with a survey dataset (the Demographic and Health Surveys for India). After generating some variables, I do a t-test to test for the equality of means (of the relevant variables) and store some results of the test as follows: ttest nsibg==nsibb, unpaired unequal local nsibeff = r(mu_1) - r(mu_2) local g3 = r(t) ttest nwfsb==nwfsg, unpaired unequal local nboeff = r(mu_1) - r(mu_2) local g4 = r(t) (later I use these local variables). Since the data does not come from a simple random sample, the standard errors and test statistics are not correct. How do I go about doing the above computations taking account of the fact that I am working with a complex survey dataset? I can use the *svyset* command to tell Stata the details of the survey design (pweights, psu and strata). But I do not know how proceed after that. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
