This is an FAQ. FAQ . . Calculating variables containing weighted group summary statistics . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . N. J. Cox and S. P. Jenkins 1/03 I want to calculate a variable containing weighted group summary statistics, but I do not want to collapse the data and egen does not support weights. How can I do this? http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/weighted.html Gisella Young I am trying to calculate the mean of a variable ("income") across groups ("bracket"), but using the relevant survey weights (variable "weight"). I tried saying: bys bracket: egen float meanincome = mean(income) [fweight=weight] but this is not possible since the egen command does not allow for weighting. This is a problem for me as if I do not use the weights the means will be wrong. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
